Research Day

Our psychiatric training in Surrey for undergraduates and postgraduates includes an annual research day

In line with HEKSS & Trust strategy, the importance of research skills are emphasised to all medical trainees. Each year apart from sessions during the academic programme, we hold an annual Trust-wide Research Day, aimed at medical trainees of all grades.

It is open to all trainees (Foundation, GP, Core & HST) and is comprehensively advertised at the induction and subsequent PGME events to ensure maximum awareness.

The day is split between a plenary session focusing on the importance of research in medicine, research skills and Trust research direction delivered by Consultants and Trust Director of Development & Innovations; and a poster presentation and award session. All posters are judged by a panel of Consultants for quality of content, relevance and clarity. The top past honours have been awarded to FY, GP & Psychiatry posts.

The feedback from the attendees is always very positive, providing a steer for our future research events.
