    Student thesis: Master's ThesisMaster of Philosophy


    This dissertation will examine the effect that a new programme of Simulation Based Education has on the professional development of senior medical students. Rather than purely conducting evaluative research concerning the efficacy of Simulation Based Education within educational curricula this research study will focus on identifying what students perceived to be the impact of learning in a simulated environment on their performance within a clinical setting. This study will critique the chosen research model and methods of data collection. The process of implementation, including all the ethical and professional issues encountered and addressed will be discussed. Findings from this study will be critically analysed and discussed. Critical discussion and debate will focus on emerging themes from this study.
