RCSI Bahrain Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland

PhD support group

The PhD Reports Group was established in October 2015-2016 by Dr Caroline Holden under the direction of Professor Davinder Sandhu and with the support of Ms. Abeer Abdel Aal. The aim of the group is to provide peer level support for RCSI staff and students in their post-graduate level studies.

Approximately twelve group members discuss their post-doctoral progress, exchange experiences and share advice - all within a supportive group environment. Areas that have been the focus of discussion this year have been Viva preparation and experiences, preparation of a research proposal, discussion of theoretical frameworks and sharing of research methodologies. The PhD Reports Group meets on a bi-monthly basis in the School of Post-graduate Studies and Research. Of late the PhD group has been celebrating the achievements of Dr Amal Al Gallaf and Dr Eman Tawash in their recent PhD achievements.
