At the end of the programme, each student must present a written work that offers ideas, theories and reasoned and evaluated explanations on a specific topic.
The final master’s project (TFM) is aimed at promoting in the student skills such as selecting a topic, planning a process of analysis and study of the selected topic, establishing objectives to be achieved in it and offering and defending a logical and justified to the problem formally posed. It allows developing in the student the abilities of analysis, problem solving and assimilation and presentation of results.
It supposes the realization, on the part of the student, of a work in which he applies and develops the knowledge acquired during the training of the Master. It can be a clinical or epidemiological research project, or a bibliographic review with conclusions drawn and comparison of the bibliography.
It will be done individually under the supervision of the assigned tutor. This will help to design and organize the work based on the work that the student does, and it is the student’s responsibility to develop the project.
The tutor will be a professor who teaches in the Master and his role is to guide the student during the work, supervise and ensure compliance with the objectives set. She provides guidance, advice and support to the student during the process of designing and executing the project. The tutor must not be the main researcher or specialist in the subject answering all the student’s research questions.
The structure of the TFM depends on a set of factors such as the topic under study and the methodology used. It must be worked with the tutor.
