Higher degrees by research

Our Discipline is very supportive of postgraduate students and higher degrees by research are offered on a full or part-time basis to accomodate clinical practice.

Here is what Dr Geoff Spurling, one of our current PhD students has to say about his experience in DGP:

"DGP has been very generous in providing me with the resources to get my thesis off the ground. After a year in, I felt like a blind man flailing about in a room trying to find the boundaries. My DGP supervisors have helped me find the edges.

Primary care research may not have the charisma of laboratory-based research but I think this thesis has the potential to benefit Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the community where I work as a clinician and it wouldn't have been possible without DGP."
