Our research team is looking for a medical student who wants to work with us in our project about child health assessments in general practice. Lundbeck Fonden has a call for scholarship grants in family medicine with a deadline of Nov 1. The grant includes salary (10.000 Dkk a month) for 6- 12 months for a student doing research as a part of his/her master’s degree.

The project: We are doing a feasibility study from Sept. 2017-Sept 2018 to prepare for a trial that will investigate the potential for child consultations in Danish general practice to improve child neurodevelopment. General practitioners have been trained in to assess parent-child interactions and will video record their child consultations.

The research year student will be trained to assess the video recordings and will explore: Are the GP’s assessments of parent-child interaction accurate?

Applicants who want to join the project should write a short application (max 1 page, incl. CV), send the application to gritt.overbeck@sund.ku.dk no later than Oct. 20. Applications in Danish and English are accepted. We will review the applications between Oct 21 and Oct 24. The applicant chosen will join us in the application to Lundbeck Fonden for the scholarship grant. If the scholarship is granted the research year will begin February 2018.
The research year student will have Prof. Philip Wilson as principal supervisor and Gritt Overbeck as co-supervisor. The project is hosted at the Section of General Practice, Department of Public Health, University of Copenhagen.
