BCOM has a strong research profile which helps inform teaching and learning throughout the curriculum. Research not only aids in teaching at BCOM but evidence based medicine is increasingly required to demonstrate the efficacy of treatments. BCOM is involved in a number of areas of research, all of which link to osteopathy and naturopathy. Research publications are frequently published in peer review journals, and conference proceedings.
Year 3 and 4 students undertake a research project which results in a project which is presented as a publishable paper. For examples of our student projects please click here
