Starting from tomorrow, I will be starting to collect data for my research. Today, my supervisor introduced me to the basic stuff that needs to be learned.

My sample size is quite big. My supervisor hopes that I can get around at least 1000 diabetic patients. I think it is achievable but tedious. Diabetes clinic is only on Tuesday and Wednesday every week and there are roughly 35-40 patients per day. All of these patients come for their routine assessment and theoretically, there should not be any dropout. So for the next 3-5 months, this will be my routine. Expect me to be busy from Tuesday to Thursday. Thursday is for data entry into database. to prepare for tomorrow.
