MEDI861 ASSESSMENT INFORMATION
The internal assessment tasks for MEDI 861 are listed below. In addition as this is the final unit in a professional doctoral program the scholar is required to pass a final examination.
FINAL EXAMINATION OF MEDI 861
Scholars must submit their work for internal review and formative feedback prior to final submission of the research thesis. Both the written thesis as well as an oral defence will be assessed to make the final determination of a grade for the MEDI 861. The final grade will be based on the recommendation of an examination panel comprising:
a. The Executive Dean (or nominee) - Chair
b. External Examiner 1
c. External Examiner 2
External examiners will have an international standing in the field of research, relevant clinical specialist qualifications and be independent of Macquarie University.
Information about the final examination procedure will be available to Scholars on the iLearn site
