The doctoral program will utilise a mixed methods approach that will include quantitative analysis of general practice data and qualitative interviews with GPs, with the aim of examining the patterns of antibiotic use and adherence to guidelines in general practice and improving our understanding of the factors that influence antibiotic prescribing in this setting. The scholarship is on a full-time basis for three years.
