During your aspiring medical years, many of you probably described research as something you absolutely loved about medicine. Perhaps, you may have considered pursuing research in conjunction with the many different other streams a medical career can offer.
However, at medical school academic medicine and research can often be perceived as a complicated path only reserved or conquered by the elitist of medical students. Finding guidance on how to effectively navigate through the research world of medicine can seem challenging.
Consequently, the research elements of the programme can be easy to neglect as medical students.
The demands placed upon medical students are extraordinary and yet the addition of research projects are often a programme requirement if not a highly encouraged option. As medical students we need to demonstrate research experience in order to obtain highly competitive training posts following graduation.
