Trainee Research Collaboratives

 

Surgical trainee-led research collaboratives offer the opportunity to run large-scale multi-centre audits and clinical trials by bringing together interested trainees into one collaborative research group.

A number of such groups now exist across the UK and their contact details can be found below.

Opportunities are available to all levels of surgical trainee, from those wanting to take their first steps in research and assist in data collection, through to those with an idea for a project they want to discuss and develop into something that can be rolled out across the collaborative group’s region and beyond.

Discuss and get advice with protocol design, statistics, ethics, funding and running your study.
Find volunteers across your region to help with multi-centre data collection.
Continue projects even when you have rotated to another hospital.
Boost your CV with your name as a co-author of a major paper in a high impact journal.

If you would like to up-date or add details of a surgical trainee-led research collaborative to this page please email here.

As a pan-specialty surgical training organisation, ASiT strongly supports the development of, and participation in, this new paradigm for audit and research. ASiT hosts a national collaborative meeting as a parallel session at the ASiT annual conference, and welcome approaches from groups wishing to become involved in this.
