Which interesting topic do you think is interesting to do for an Extended Project Qualification?

  • -1 votes

I am given the opportunity to have an Extended Project Qualification alongside my A level options of Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths. I would like to relate it to medicine and the subjects I am studying. My main interest is NHS and medicine. I don't have much imagination and would appreciate any interesting and stimulating ideas which would enable me to do a presentation,write a 5000 word essay on and do research upon to form a project. Any ideas would be much appreciated !!

I am doing extended project too with my A-levels, and I am doing mine on a medical related area.

Medicine is a very broad area, so there is loads to pick from. However you have to pick something which is easy to research and also that you have access to. It is always good to do something you know about already. 

You could do:

+ Are the treatments for a certain disease worth it?

+ what are the ethical issues surrounding testing drugs?

+ Do the negatives of testing drugs outweight the positives?

+ Are the long term effects of surgery (for a certain illness) worth living with?

+ Should obese people be treated on the NHS?

+ Is the NHS worth it? (Consider costs, treatment, technology etc)

Hopefully these ideas help you come up with something.

I think the lung ideas is great.

Joanne for veterinary I think you could do like is it right to test drugs/make-up on animals or something like that.

Tia you could do one of these question - Is it worth donating lungs to people who have smoked? Or Is it worth donating your body for medical research when you die?
