Global PaedSurg Research Training Fellowship

Global PaedSurg aims to not just generate much needed research, but also the much needed researchers of tomorrow. From the beginning, developing research capacity globally has been one of our main aims. Alongside the crucial research skills that Global PaedSurg collaborators may develop from participation and presentation of the study, there is also opportunity for collaborators to undertake more independent research and study to further enhance research capacity.

The Research Training Fellowship was a series of monthly webinars that worked through the stages of planning, developing and undertaking a research project. There was also the option for collaborators to undertake their own local research project alongside the main study, guided by an allocated academic mentor.

The Research Training Fellowship webinars have now concluded, please see below for links to the PowerPoint slides and session notes.

Members of the Research Training Fellowship will continue to retain access to video recordings of the sessions on the blog via passwords sent separately. Consultants and registrars may access their session videos here. Junior doctors and medical students may access their session videos here.
