Applied Research in Anti-Microbial Resistance


The main purpose of this course is to introduce the candidates to quantitative and qualitative methods for conducting meaningful inquiry and research. They will gain an overview of research intent and design, methodology and technique, format and presentation, and data management and analysis informed by commonly used statistical methods. The course will offer the candidates an opportunity to address current methodological issues as they pertain to their own research interests thereby, providing each with the potential to knowledgeably justify and explain her or his chosen methodology and method.
