National survey of Gastroenterology trainees' experience and intentions in research and academia

Monday, 04 April 2016 14:27

Prof Matt Brookes
Chair, BSG Research Committee

Dr Laith Alrubaiy
Chair, BSG Trainees Committee

The BSG Research and Trainees Committees are keen to determine the academic and research intentions of trainees. A better understanding of what exposure trainees have had to date and their future career plans will allow us to develop tools to assist in promoting research exposure and academic career pathways.

To this end we are asking ALL speciality trainees to complete this short 5-10 minute questionnaire. Results will be held anonymously and outcomes will be provided through the BSG Research and Trainees Committees.

With the information we receive we will plan to support a BSG sponsored research symposium and assist in the development of Registrar Research Networks.

At the end of the survey you will be asked to provide a contact email if you wish to be entered into a draw for an IPAD worth £500.
