NIHR ASSOCIATE PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR (API) SCHEME
The Surgical Intervention Trials Unit is keen to welcome and support trainees engaging with our portfolio of studies. We avidly support the NIHR Associate Principal Investigator (API) scheme and work with the NIHR to ensure that trainees are appropriately recognised for their participation in research delivery.
You can register to become an Associate PI, which is a formal NIHR scheme. The aim is to train the site investigators of the future. If you fulfill the requirement of NIHR, then you will get a certificate for your portfolio.
To find out about the Associate PI scheme, and collaborative authorship for each of our studies, then please contact the relevant study below:
Bristol Oxford Surgical Trials Intervention Course (BOSTiC)
The Bristol and Oxford Surgical Trials Units successfully ran a 3-day surgical research training event on surgical trials for foundation, core and specialist trainees of all surgical specialities. Students worked collaboratively to learn how to design and conduct RCTs in surgery that answer research questions of relevance to surgeons, patients and the NHS.
