Goals and Characteristics
UNSW medical students are encouraged to carry out an independent learning project (ILP) with the ORI in their third or fourth year of their medical studies. Similarly, UNSW honours degree students may carry out and write up a reseach thesis on an orthopaedic subject agreed upon by the student and their supervisor. To ensure placement, serious applicants should apply for the appropriate year as soon as UNSW announces the applications are open.
The nature of the projects may involve either clinical researach and/or biological research. Biomechanical projects are also popular.
