JCU CMD - The Honours program

JCU College of Medicine and Dentistry - The Honours program

Do you want to engage in research? Do you need a support structure to get going? Have a look at the Honours program!

The MBBS Honours program aims to allow individuals to learn about research and to undertake research later in their professional career. This is an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of how new knowledge is acquired. An Honours degree advances the academic qualifications of MBBS graduates in an increasingly competitive field.

Welcome to the web site for the Honours program at College of Medicine and Dentistry, James Cook University. Have a look at the information here. Please contact Associate Professor Ronny Gunnarsson if you want more information.

The Honours program has a strong focus on actually doing research in a structured environment with personal advisors and course specific support. The focus is on learning by doing.

Overview of the Honours program

information Pathways within the Honours program and prerequisites

The Honours program consists of four different pathways / courses, each built up of a series of sequential subjects:

  • Bachelor of Medical Science with Honours. Course code: 72109. This is a research-based full time year undertaken (ie a year off from the MBBS Program). Although it does extend graduation from MBBS by one year, it has the advantage of allowing total devotion to a research project. An undergraduate student can commence this after year 3 and as long as they are an undergraduate student.
  • Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (Honours). Course code: 72009. This is a part time (50%) overload in parallel to undergraduate studies during the final two Years (5+6), of the MBBS program. This is the typical pathway for an undergraduate MBBS student in year 4 wanting to commence Honours in year 5. The student would start to make preparations during year 4 and commence in January when starting MBBS year 5.
  • Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery with Honours (Graduate). Course code: 107209. This course exists in two forms: One is a 50% overload in parallel during two years and the other is a one year full time course (the latter is rarely used). It can be commenced from year 6 of the MBBS up until postgraduate Year 4. (PGY4). This is suitable for undergraduate students who wish to start Honours in year 6 . The part time version is also suitable for junior doctors commencing up until PGY4.
  • Bachelor of Dental Surgery with Honours (Graduate). Course code: 73009. This course exists in two versions. One part time working with Honours during year 5 and after, in total a two year course. The full time version is working full time with Honours studies after completion of year 5. This is the option if you are studying dentistry or is a dentist

information Enrollment routines --- Applying to the Honours program

Previously some high achieving students (having a D or HD) were offered participation in the Honours program. Students having a credit could do a side-entry application. All that is changed and the current routine is that all students with at least a credit in the two preceding years aiming to commence the Honours program in January must submit a pre-Honours application during the year preceding commencement. For due dates look at the bottom of page informing about the Honours program. The due dates will not be extended. Students having a pass are not eligible to apply.

The pre-Honours application should outline the planned project and be signed off by advisors for the project. It takes time to find a project with advisors and to jointly plan the project in enough detail. Consequently, you need to start planning for this early during the year preceding commencement.

The pre-Honours application is eligible on this web site.

The formal enrollment procedure once you decided to apply is as follows:

information What forms needs to be completed to enroll in the Honours program? (Updated 26/10/2017)

The College of Medicine and Dentistry
James Cook University
The Research Office
Building 39 - room 224
Townsville, QLD 4811
Australia
Be aware that mail sometimes takes longer time than anticipated! Submit early to be ahead of problems.

3. Register into the standard subjects on eStudent

Remember to first register in the standard subjects on eStudent before 8th of January (Do not enroll in any standard MBBS/Dentistry subjects if you are to commence the one year full time program). The reason for this is to ensure you can continue your studies in case the pre-Honours application is not approved.

4. Wait for the outcome of your pre-Honours application

First await the outcome of your pre-Honours application so you know if your application was accepted or not. If it is accepted proceed with item 5 below.

5. Enroll into the Honours subject codes on eStudent + submit online HECS form

Once the pre-Honours application is approved the following will happen: Head of the College of Medicine and Dentistry will sign a document recommending the faculty registrar to register all students with an approved pre-Honours application for registration into the Honours program. This document and the students course transfer applications will be compiled at the research office in Townsville and send to the faculty registrar for registration. Please note that student enrolment will remove you from the standard MBBS subjects in this process. Students will only then be able to enroll into the Honours subjects on eStudent after the faculty registrar has finalised this registration. Now enrol into the Honours subjects for study period 1 and 2 on eStudent. This must be finalised no later than 8th of January. You will now be enrolled solely in the MBBS with Honours subjects.

6. Monitor possible problems in the enrollment process

For any question regarding the enrollment process please contact . It is important to monitor your JCU e-mail also during all of December-January in case we need to contact you.

Not being enrolled means that your ethics approval (given under the condition that you are an Honours students) is not valid and you are breaking the law. Hence, important that you give priority to this early.

Information specific for advisors are found on a separate web-page for advisors of Honours students

Practicalities

information Finding advisors (supervisors) and a topic for my project
There are three main pathways to get a relation with an advisor:
  1. One option is that you do one small part of a large project that is already up and running. In this situation a more or less detailed plan for what needs to be done comes from the advisor.
  2. Another alternative is that an advisor has an idea or a research opportunity for a project not yet up and running. In this situation you will be able to have a fair bit of influence on deciding all details.
  3. The third pathway is that you have your own idea and need help to sort out how to realize it. This means that you will create a project based entirely on your own ideas.
In all these situations you need advisors. To facilitate match-making between students and advisors the College offers some resources:
  1. A project database of ongoing projects. To find this click Search in the menu to the left. Then look under Customized Search. Click on Search for ongoing or completed projects. You will find different lists. In each of these lists Date commenced is clickable sending you to more information about the project. The name of the principal researcher (on top) or other co-workers or advisors are clickable leading to contact information.
  2. A database of ideas / research opportunities. This is our match-making website where researchers put up research opportunities. To find this click Search in the menu to the left. Then look under Customized Search. We do not want indexing robots to index all our ideas for future research projects. Consequently the match-making site is hidden unless you create a personal profile and log in. You will find different lists. In each of these lists the date for last update of information is clickable sending you to more information about the research opportunity. The name of the principal researcher (on top) or other co-workers or advisors are clickable leading to contact information.
  3. Contact the Honours site coordinators in the site where you will be most of the time when you would do Honours. Their names and contact details are found in the latest version of the Honours handbook. I recommend that you try to make this contact in small groups if possible.
  4. Approach researchers you know are involved in research with a topic similar to your interest.
You should investigate this in the order suggested above. Finding advisors and a project is the first hurdle you must sort out before being accepted to the Honours program. You will usually end up with more than one advisor. The combined requirements for your advisory panel is:
  • At least one advisor must have some formal affiliation to JCU. The interpretation is that they must be on JCU’s payroll for at least 5% of full time. The other advisor does not need to have any affiliation with James Cook University and they do not even need to have their work place in Queensland (given that they are happy advising you on distance).
  • At least one advisor must have some research training. Preferably a PhD. At least a Masters by Research (not Masters by course work).
  • It is desirable that at least one supervisor is familiar with the topic.
Theoretically one advisor can fulfill all requirements above. However. most students have two advisors. There is no upper limit on the number of advisors you are allowed to have. If you need three advisors to fulfill these requirements (and if you can find them) then we are happy with you having three advisors. However, due to a lack of advisors JCU will usually not be able to supply more than one advisor for each Honours student. Furthermore, having lots of advisors is sometimes troublesome and also reduces the number of advisors available for other Honours students. Consequently, we recommend most Honours students to have two advisors, one academic affiliated with JCU and one clinical familiar with the topic. Having one or three advisors should only occur during special circumstances. You do not need special permission to have one or three advisors. Just ensure that your advisory team meets all three requirements.
information The Honours course step by step

The Honours course Consists of mandatory formal teaching. It also has two seminars (Entry and Exit seminar) and submission of three components: a project proposal, a systematic literature review and an Honours thesis. There are also four short student reports (mainly consisting of check boxes) during different phases of the course. The bulk of the learning consists of doing research under supervision. The step by step process can be described as:

  1. Find advisors and a project during the year preceding commencement of the Honours course. The menu option Search will guide you. You can also engage in other projects than those mentioned on the Match-making site (part of Search). Discuss with your advisors and start planning your project.
  2. Create a personal profile (in case you do not already have one) on this website. A personal profile is necessary to login here and access more functionality. Ensure you log in to this site before using the links below.
  3. Read information for applicants and start to write your pre-Honours application. Read the instructions on top carefully. See due date for submission further down (including a confirmation form carrying your's and your advisor's signatures. The web form will produce the confirmation form when you finalise your project pre-Honours application).
  4. The first hurdle is the assessment of your pre-Honours application. This is accepted or rejected. You will be notified of a decision by e-mail in late December or early January (Dates are different if you aim for the one year full time Medical Science Honours). If your pre-Honours application is approved enroll into the Honours program in January as described below (Dates and deadlines).
  5. If your pre-Honours application is approved ensure it is registered in the CMD project database. Check with your advisors if the project is already registered by them previously. We recommend that you also start using a log book. Observe that you should use the template Description of an current or completed project and not the Match-making template for description of an idea for a project or a specific research opportunity.
  6. Attend all teaching sessions. The first session is a full day introductory research seminar. This aims to give a basic understanding of the Honours course. The seminar will be held simultaneously in Cairns, Darwin, Mackay and Townsville using video-link.
  7. A few students will be asked to submit an Honours project proposal. This is a refinement of what you described in your pre-Honours application in case that was not deemed to be sufficient. Read the instructions on top carefully. Check Dates and deadlines below for final submission date (including a confirmation form carrying your's and your advisor's signatures. The web form will produce this when you finalise your Honours project proposal).
  8. Present the Honours project proposal in an Entry seminar. The seminar will be held simultaneously in Cairns, Darwin, Mackay and Townsville using video-link.
  9. Submit your student report 1. (Your report will not be approved unless you have completed registration in the project database (see above).
  10. Submit your Literature review. The best advice for doing a systematic literature review is to comply with the PRISMA guidelines. Read more on advice for doing a systematic literature review. Following these guidelines will give you a manuscript that has the best possible chances of being accepted for publication (and getting the highest possible marks).
  11. Submit your student report 2.
  12. Submit your student report 3.
  13. Present the findings in your research project during an Exit seminar. The seminar will be held simultaneously in Cairns, Darwin, Mackay and Townsville using video-link.
  14. Submit your student report 4.
  15. Submit your Honours thesis for grading. Use the template CMD - Honours student - Thesis for assessment and grading.
  16. You will usually get some feed-back from the JCU assessors on your thesis. You may use this feed-back to refine your thesis. A good idea is also to submit manuscripts that are not yet submitted to a peer reviewed scientific journal. Once copyright issues are sorted out proceed to the next item.
  17. Submit your final Honours thesis for storing at CMD. Use the template JCU - CMD - Final Thesis - for storage.

This web system will not be involved in the entry and exit seminars. However, all other components must be submitted on this website.

All students must follow the latest version of the Honours handbook. You will find it below.
information How to submit applications and assignments
You write submissions directly in this system. Follow instructions carefully. Even if you finalise your submission / application it will still be eligible for changes until final deadline. You will find your current application under the menu option "My pages" and my applications.

Final Overall Honours gradeThe final grading is discussed within the CMD Honours committee resulting in a proposalThe proposal from the CMD Honours committee is ratified by the CMD Assessment committee.The CMD Dean makes the final decision.
  • Averaging occurs where there are two assessors of a component and when their marks are within 15% of each other. Where a discrepancy between two assessors is greater than 15% a third assessor is appointed.
  • Averaging occurs where there are three assessors of a component. However, a fourth assessor is appointed if one of the three assessors differs more than 20% from the average of the other two.
  • Averaging occurs where there are four assessors of a component. However, if one of the assessors differs more than 20% from the average of the other three this assessor is removed
The assessment process with its grading criteria are under revision and may change. This will be discussed in the CMD Honours committee (with student representatives present). We intend to listen carefully to the students perspective. More information on this will be published here during 2017.
information Is the Honours program always peaches and roses?

Considering the Honours program? Let us be honest! During the years many Honours students had a very positive experience, enjoyed the learning process and acquired experience useful for life. Some found it troublesome and a few experienced a nightmare. Our compiled experience of the potential problems that can occur and how to prevent them has boiled down to:

  • Being on top of things. The number one cause for problems has been to fall behind the anticipated progress in the course. There are two pitfalls more common than others. The first is that the student submits the ethics application or push other aspects of the project too late. The other pitfall is that the ethics process (including funny stuff like PHA, SSA, etc.) takes more time than expected. The solution is to expect that some processes take a very long time. Hence it is a good idea to start preparations, such as planning of the project and initiating the ethics application, during the year preceding commencement of the Honours program. After commencement try to stay on top of due dates. There is nothing wrong by being way before a due date. We have now changed the enrollment routines so all potential students need to do a pre-Honours application. This application will demonstrate to what extent you are on top of things by early taking initiative and engaging with potential advisors in planning your project. The main purpose with the pre-Honours application is to identify students having enough motivation to do these preparations before the course starts. Having this motivation seems to be more important than if you got a C, D or an HD in your previous year.
  • Different expectations between student and advisors. This might be a problem for a few students. Most students are likely to have more than one advisor. What is their motivation to support you during a long time? Does any of them have a previous track record as an advisor? If special skills are needed does your advisor expect you to master them directly or will they take time to teach you this. It is often a good idea to discuss this early rather than experiencing a surprise.
  • Not addressing problems promptly. If you encounter problems or need clarification from your advisor don't wait. Address this asap. If you can't sort it out contact the Honours program co-coordinator and get help with sorting out problems early. You can get help if you ask for it.
