This one-day workshop, organised by the BSG Research Committee, is aimed at gastroenterology and hepatology trainees. It aims to inspire them to develop their own national research network by building an understanding of what is involved in research and confidence in undertaking it. If you're at CT2 level or beyond, or know someone who is and could be interested, please come along! The workshop is also for new academic trainees and late developing clinical researchers, so don't be shy.

Reserve your place now by sending a cheque for £50 made out to BSG (address it to BSG Research, 3 St Andrews Place, London NW1 4LB). Include a covering note stating your full name and contact details and specifying that it's to reserve a place on the Research Workshop in Birmingham. Cheques will be cashed for those delegates who do not attend (and haven't cancelled a week in advance); delegates who do attend will be given their cheques back on the day.
