BOSTiC : Training in Research Methods for Surgical Trainees - Wednesday, 27 April 2016 to Friday, 29 April 2016, 9am - 4pm

Research in surgery is challenging and requires multi-disciplinary collaboration with methodologists and clinicians to design and conduct high quality studies. The overall aim of all our training programmes is to inspire surgical trainees to learn and practise high quality research that will be relevant to surgical care of patients in the NHS.

The Oxford and Bristol Surgical Trials Units will be running a three day surgical research training event (BOSTiC) for surgical trainees in Spring 2016 (Wednesday 27th April to Friday 29th April inclusive) at the University of Bristol.

This course is designed for surgical trainees from all specialities wanting to learn about trials methodology, and to be involved in high quality research projects.

The programme consists of three back -to-back research training days and provides the opportunity for trainees to learn how to evaluate surgical interventions in well designed and conducted studies.
