Research year projects

At DCE, it is possible to carry out projects within the department's research areas, which cover many different medical and surgical specialties. The supervisors will work with the research year student to define the research question and the project. Below are examples of topics of previous research year projects:

  • The importance of comorbidity for the prognosis after heart scintigraphy
  • The prognosis after postoperative acute renal failure in cardiac surgery patients
