Critical Review of a Biomedical Intervention
Full course description
The content of the course depends on the choice of the individual student. Students choose a topic related to one of three trajectories focussing on either drug, nutritional, or physical activity interventions. The emphasis is on critically reviewing the literature on a chosen topic and related research question. The necessary knowledge and skills for this academic project were already obtained in previous courses throughout the bachelor.
A critical narrative literature review will be written in multidisciplinary groups of 3-4 students supervised by an experienced researcher (supervisor). Besides the narrative literature review, an individual and personal reflection report on the process of this project will be written as well. Students meet with their supervisor 2-3 times during this course. The supervisor finally assesses the group report, as well as the individual reflection report.
