Starting Research Workshop

What is it?

A half-day online workshop for those who are interested in research but don’t know how to get going.

This may be of particular interest to those applying for a research-related internship or pre-doctoral fellowship as they start a clinical academic career.


The next Starting Research event will take place online on Thursday 22 September 2022. Further details and registration information are available on EventBrite.

This workshop will cover:

  • What makes a good research question
  • Establishing the evidence-gap: libraries, literature searches & reviews
  • Finding a good supervisor
  • An introduction to patient & public involvement
  • Finding training and funding to develop research ideas
  • Sources of other support for undertaking research
  • Taking first steps in research

Who should attend?

This event is relevant to health care professionals, social care and public health practitioners who are thinking about research.

Whilst much of what will be presented and discussed will be of general use, panels are likely to consist of people with specific knowledge concerning training, funding and other support available in South Central (including Wessex) and East Midlands regions.

When is it?

The next Starting Research event will be held online on Thursday 22 September 2022.
