Under the close supervision of experienced researchers, students will be able to test their research capabilities and gain confidence in pursuing postgraduate studies in the future.

Scholarships are for the full-time equivalent of a minimum of six weeks and a maximum of eight weeks. Half the funding is provided by The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) with the other half provided by the host department at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (TQEH).
