The Capstone Project is a challenging and independent research project that aims to consolidate your learning by drawing together the main strands of your academic and clinical undergraduate programme into a clinically-relevant, evidence-based, written report. This report will take the form of a critically appraised topic (CAT) arising from a clinical question posed by you in consultation with your project supervisor. The CAT will require you to construct a structured clinical question, search for relevant sources of evidence addressing your question, critically appraisal the evidence and draw a conclusion based on the highest-quality evidence available.
