Postgraduate Training Network for Research in Reproductive Health
Meeting 3 September 2003
A consensus meeting of the participants of the Postgraduate Research Training Network took place on 3 September 2003. The purpose was to discuss the organisation and running of the Postgraduate Research Training Course in the collaborating centres.
The participants of the meeting were:
The Postgraduate Research Training Course in Reproductive Health, organized in collaboration with the Department of Reproductive Health and Research/WHO has been taking place in Geneva for 13 years and has had around 300 fellows. It is a course in training in clinical research methodology with the objective to teach the participants on how to read, prepare and interpret a scientific paper.
A major component of the Course is the synthesis of research evidence. This implies to teach how to summarize scientific evidence, which are the tools to be used and how to make clinical decisions on a scientific basis.
The idea is to disseminate the course with the support of previous Geneva course participants, create an interaction between collaborating institutions and improve the quality of teaching. Participants for the Geneva course must have the capacity to become trainers locally.
Adaptations of the course programme to local needs can be made, but these should always follow the basic structure and the content of the Geneva Course.
