Current UQO Student, Donald Chang, speaks about the importance of research at the UQMS Research Conference.


UQO students engage with the most critical issues in health care across the globe as they study the research process and acquire the associated research skills that are vital to the evidence-based and ever-changing practice of medicine. The development of independent critical-thinking, the ability to develop and expand upon theoretical concepts, and the capacity to thoughtfully analyze findings are attained through active participation and immersion in the realm of scientific inquiry.
