ABN Research Opportunity Forum 21 May 2019

Research Opportunity Forum

We increasingly hear of difficulties from clinical academics in recruiting UK trainees for research jobs especially 3 year PhDs and yet when we talk to trainees we hear of huge enthusiasm for research. There are many reasons for this including the increasing rigidity of the out of programme rules, the lack of funding opportunities, the difficulty in reaching the right people with adverts and the lack of a forum where trainees can see what research opportunities there are.

We may think that trainees know about our research interests but they often don’t. We are already attempting to address some of these issues with our flagship ABN fellowship programme but we appreciate this is limited in the number of trainees it can support. We are therefore launching a research opportunity forum at our next ABN meeting in Edinburgh. This will be a one hour forum which will allow clinical academics  briefly to present their research and research opportunities to trainees in very focused 5-10 minute slots (somewhat analogous to speed dating!).

The forum will be run alongside the beginning of the traditional drinks reception on the 21st and will allow trainees to mix with speakers and discuss potential opportunities informally at the reception following the forum.  

Details of how potential speakers and trainees register for this event will follow in due course.
