Guide - Training in research for the benefit of children

In 2012, the College published Turning the Tide: harnessing the power of child health research, which made recommendations in six key areas, including education, training and guidance.

We published this guide in 2013 to help meet our aim of improving training in research skills for all paediatricians in our training programme.

Produced by the College Academic Training Committee, with special thanks to Dr Helen Budge for her contribution to the content and for coordinating input from other members of the committee and from academic colleagues across the devolved nations.

There is a continuing need to sustain and develop academic training programmes for those paediatricians who wish to pursue an academic career.
