RCSI Bahrain RSS

RCSI Bahrain RSS is designed to introduce RCSI undergraduates to the world of research as their first step in becoming future researchers. The RSS provides undergraduate students across all campuses (Bahrain, Dublin, Perdana and Penang) an opportunity to become involved in research projects during the summer months. In most cases, multiple students are selected for individual projects providing students the opportunity for local, international and interdisciplinary peer collaboration. Students spend approximately 8 weeks of the summer in a non-laboratory, laboratory or clinical setting, working on a research project under the supervision of an RCSI Bahrain supervisor. The college has identified 4 key thematic research areas in which to focus its research energy. These are Cardiovascular and Endocrinology, Oncology, Medical Education and Biosciences. Under these 4 key thematic research areas, the projects may be focused on but are not limited to: Pharmacology, Biochemistry, Biophysics, Microbiology, Molecular biology, Physiology, Psychology, Public Health and Epidemiology, Community Care, Private Care, Health Professions Education, Clinical Investigation and Bioethics. At the end of the programme, students are required to submit an abstract to the RCSI Bahrain International Research day and complete and present a PowerPoint poster/oral presentation of their research findings at the conference.
