Up to 3 fulltime PhD scholarship opportunities are available for a local allied health professional to participate in the 1000 Norms Project.

In the era of patient-centred outcomes research, the 1000Norms Project will be a critical resource for outcome measure development in clinical trials of children and adults with neurological and musculoskeletal disorders. A normative reference dataset will be a powerful resource for our research activities and an important dataset to share internationally. It will provide clinicians with a framework of normal variation and provide a reference point from which pathology can be diagnosed.
