It gives me immense pleasure to write the preface to the Second Edition with a new face Synopsis, Dissertation and Research to PG Students brought out by our beloved M/s Jaypee Brothers Medical Publishers (P) Ltd, New Delhi, India. Thousands of postgraduates from different courses and disciplines from various universities, who are seeking guidance regarding their dissertation/thesis work with respect to the preparation of synopsis, methodology, designing research and final presentation, are responsible for the outcome of the book.
An attempt has also been made to provide simple and systematic guidance through this on postgraduate course, on university time-table, on medical ethics that are relevant and prevention of hospital-acquired infection.
Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS), Bengaluru, Karnataka, India, gave me a platform to prepare library reference record, plan for dissertation work, proforma for synopsis, postgraduate evaluation sheet, guidelines for writing references, and they are added in the appendices for references.
Synopsis, Dissertation and Research are updated and elaborated for the use of all postgraduates in University of Health Sciences, viz. Medical, Dental, Pharmacy, Nursing, Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Hospital Administration, and Speech and Hearing.
I hope that the book will serve present requirement of any postgraduates and teachers in their endeavors.
