“Educators and trainees are warmly invited to attend the Research for Clinicians day titled ‘How to get started and keep going!’ on Thursday 17 October 2019 in the Postgraduate Centre, Belfast City Hospital.
The event, sponsored by QUB, UMS and NIMDTA, lasts a full day and has been divided into two sections. The morning involves a symposium on research opportunities. It is free and open to all Foundation, Specialty, Dental and GP trainees to attend whether you want to find out about research opportunities or have a definite plan to do research which you want to discuss with a senior QUB researcher.

The afternoon will consist of judging and prize giving for trainee abstracts. This is an excellent opportunity for doctors and dentists in training to present original work in the form of clinical, basic science and educational studies, quality improvement, clinical case reports and dental research.
