During the next few months, we will continue to audit postgraduate research and training at RNSH. Many surgeons have already participated in a survey conducted by the Discipline of Surgery at the University which looks at recent research activities including student supervision, grant success and publications. In addition to this, I have been meeting with the supervisors of training within the surgical units to discuss what the expectations for research placed upon trainees are and how the RNS SERT Institute might be able to further facilitate this occurring. We will also be holding an education/support day for all surgical registrars and fellows later this year, likely in November. Stay tuned for details!
