Educators and trainees are warmly invited to attend the Research for Clinicians event titled ‘How to make career transitions’ on the morning of Thursday 5 November 2020 online.

The event, sponsored by QUB, UMS and NIMDTA, lasts a half day and is free of charge to attend. It is open to all Foundation, Medical Specialty, Dental Core and Specialty, 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. It is recommended that trainees apply for study leave to attend this event.  Click here to view the programme for the day.

Following guest speakers, presentations will be delivered by doctors and dentists in training, with judging and prize giving for the best presentations. This is an excellent opportunity for doctors and dentists in training to present their original work in the form of clinical, basic science and educational studies, quality improvement, clinical case reports and dental research.
