​ Training Workshop on Dissertation Writing – By Scientific Committee

Training Workshop on Dissertation Writing

Postgraduate students in Medical colleges rarely perceive dissertation as an important component of their training. Most often dissertations are results of poorly planned and executed research or copy and paste of a previously done research/dissertation. Even though there are a number of reasons which can be attributed to such practices, one strong reason is that the postgraduate students are not exposed to a formal training for research and academic writing.

Hence, in recognition of the need for enhancing the dissertation writing and research skills of the post graduates, the Scientific Committee organized a Training Workshop on Dissertation Writing on 13th and 14th June 2018 for III – year MD/MS students. Forty-one postgraduates attended the workshop.

Dr M G Shivaramu. Principal, AIMS delivered the key note address and stressed upon the importance of research in health professionals.

The Sessions of day 1 dealt with topics like Writing the introduction, aim and Objectives, Methodology, Review of Literature, results and discussion; also about data organisation and analysis

The Sessions of day 2 involved topics like Writing Conclusion, Summary and Abstract, References; how to avoiding plagiarism and improving language skills.

The workshop concluded with a post-test, reflections on the workshop and distribution of certificates
