Medical Research in PNG: Challenges & Opportunities

I am researching for a presentation I plan to give at the Menzies Research Institute, University of Tasmania in June and from my discussions with my peers and some seniors clinicians in PNG, I am getting the impression that lack of training in research techniques and methods is a major challenge for PNG medical researchers.

Another theme coming through is PNG doctors are overwhelmed with clinical patient care that time to think and plan research is lacking among many PNG clinicians.

Most PNG clinical doctors think PNGIMR should lead the way to promoting clinical medical research among PNG doctors. Promoting and making accessibility to PNGIMR’s various resources should also be easier for clinical researchers.

UPNG Medical School is another institution that can lead medical research.

Despite the many challenges, PNG is a gold mine for medical researchers and many young researchers can make a name for themselves in their field of interests as data is lacking in many areas, particularly tropical diseases. There is also a lot of opportunity for operational research among our many busy PNG  clinical doctors as well.

    Sexy lingerie when sold at wholesale rates is a very lucrative
    offer for any consumer. Whether you are photographing
    a wedding or shooting for a magazine, you will have much better
    results photographing the real model instead of trying to hide her or cover her up.
    Try a babydoll with a cut-away front in a misty blue color.
