How to do a minor research thesis (for instance an M. Med study report)

Here is an excellent overview from Professor Trevor Duke who is a conjoint academic with UPNG.  Follow his advice when setting up the study and writing its report.

Abstract:  Many universities and colleges in low-income and middle-income countries require a masters dissertation or thesis for as part of postgraduate training, and some
colleges offer a 1-year to 2-year diploma of child health as a clinical qualification to enable skills in child health for generalists, or as part of the early phase of paediatric
training. This paper describes the stages of doing a research project for such a masters or diploma, and describes in detail how to write a minor thesis. The paper is designed to provide a practical approach for junior researchers, and their supervisors. Colleges differ in their formal requirements of a minor thesis (word count, line spacing, referencing style), but this paper outlines the principles and practical issues rarely covered elsewhere.
