Research by undergraduate medical students: Common pitfalls and ethical dilemmas

Alhad Mulkalwar
In recent times, multiple attempts have been made to involve medical students in research projects right from the early days of their medical education. Such efforts have started showing results and students are involving themselves in research workshops and activities to understand scientific literature better. However, they need to keep in mind some important ethical aspects which they may tend to overlook. Here, I highlight the loopholes exploited by young researchers and shortcuts used in the process. I also focus on different measures medical students could incorporate in their research to generate quality data, while following ethical practices.
