Academic toolkit

If you're a paediatric trainee interested in pursuing an academic career pathway, explore this resource - from funding application checklists to tips on writing your PhD application and case studies from those already in research.

The resource was developed in partnership, and is supported by, the Academic Paediatrics Association, the UK's Experimental Arthritis Treatment Centre for Children (EATC for Children) and RCPCH.

It features:

  • Timeline - from pre-PhD preparation to post-Fellowship options, each with a wealth of resources to guide you as you progress through your academic career
  • Priorities for personal development - with advice on CV preparation and the core research skills you need to develop in order to thrive in an academic career
  • Case studies - accounts of those who've succeeded in the paediatric research field... and what they've learnt along the way.
