Supporting Trainee Research

Trainees looking at notes.

Research is an important aspect of our training programmes

It gives doctors a thorough understanding of evidence-based clinical practice, research methodology and critical thinking.

It also demonstrates an ability to finish tasks and balance the conflicting pressures of clinical, academic and personal demands.

We are committed to supporting emerging clinician investigators. Below is an example of a research project we are currently supporting.

Would you like help with research?

We are delighted to support emerging clinician investigators. If you’re on an RCPI training programme and have an idea for research that will support effective training, healthy physicians or quality healthcare, we can help.

We can support you through the full research process, from putting together a strong proposal for funding, to getting your research published.

Just get in touch!
