The dissertation module offers the opportunity for you to apply your Masters level knowledge to solve an allergy problem. You can choose either a professional project or a research project, both of which can be based around your work and should be aimed at improving clinical care for people with allergies. Professional projects include a service evaluation, clinical audit or needs assessment based around allergy clinical services. Research projects generate new knowledge where there is no or limited research evidence available or can systematically review the literature to answer a research question. You will use your knowledge gained from the Clinical Research Skills module to design and conduct your dissertation project. The dissertation is the final step in your MSc Allergy journey. It is exciting, challenging, and ultimately can be very rewarding.
