Title: Medical Thesis Writing - Beginner Guide


1
A Step-by-step Guide on How to Write an Ideal
Medical Thesis
2
What do you need to write a medical thesis?
Of course, a knowledge about how to conduct a
research and how to pen down its results in an
appropriate format.  Even if you are adept in
clinical research, it doesnt mean writing a
thesis comes easily to you. A medical thesis has
a structure that is important to follow.
3
Here we provide a step-by-step guide on how to
write an ideal medical thesis
4
Step 1 Start your thesis with a
suitable Title. The title is an intro to the
contents of your medical thesis. An ideal title
should be within 65 characters, devoid of all
abbreviations and grammatical mistakes, and not
contain stop words like a, an, the, of,
but, etc. Step 2 Next, write your
thesis Abstract. An abstract is an introduction
that tells the readers why you conducted the
particular study.  What has already been done in
the field, what were the gaps, and how you fill
those gaps with your study?
5
To write an ideal abstract
  • Give a brief background information about your
    topic
  • State the importance of the problem and what is
    unknown about it
  • Tell the readers about the objectives of your
    study clearly
  • Give references to the research papers written on
    your research topic. However, do not cite the
    well-known facts. For example, Isaac Newton
    discovered gravity
  • Include no information other than the problem
    being examined

6
Step 3 After the abstract, follow it with the
title Method and Material. Format this section
as below
  • Setting the environmental conditions in which
    you conducted your research
  • Sample what materials were used in research and
    details about the participants in the study
  • Inclusion and exclusion criteria what factors
    were considered to include or exclude any
    participant in the study
  • Measurement tools details about the methods and
    equipment used to measure the outcomes of the
    study
  • Independent and Dependent variables what were
    the factors you controlled or changed during the
    experiment and what you measured as the outcome

7
Step 4 Write the Analysis of Data. Step
5 Write the Results where you will show the
conclusion of your study.  You can present your
results as a text, table, figure, or illustrative
graphs, but keep in mind the aim of your study.
Include no result that doesnt satisfy the aim of
your study. Step 6 It is the most crucial step
where you include the Discussion of your
results.
8
An ideal discussion should include
  • The principal findings of your study
  • Strengths and weaknesses of your study in
    relation to other studies in the field
  • A take-home message for the clinicians and
    policymakers
  • Questions that your study cant answer to
    propagate further research

9
Step 7 Follow the discussion with
the Limitations of your study Step 8 At the
end of your thesis, include your References.
Track all your references so you dont miss out
on anyone.
10
Finally, the quality of your thesis depends upon
the topic you choose, whether you opt for a
purely scientific experiment or a clinical trial
or a social research study addressing the
experiences of the patients, etc.
11
Seek help from your mentor at every stage of
clinical research as well as medical thesis
writing. To be ideal, the study should be carried
out ethically in compliance with the legal
regulations.
