Research Training Courses
Here we have outlined a few courses/training modules that are useful for learning about research methodology.
INCEPT (clINical aCademia Elearning PlaTform)
INCEPT is a joint venture between the University of Edinburgh and Student Audit and Research in Surgery (STARSurg) collaborative. The site contains multiple e-learning modules that cover study design, statistics and research careers. Overall, this is an excellent starting point for medical students who want to learn about research methods.
Time: 15 Hours
NIHR Good Clinical Practice (Online Course)
The National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) offers a good clinical practice course, which introduces some basic concepts that researchers need to know. Many research funders/sponsors will require those involved in a study to have undertaken this training. This can be done as an online course that takes approximately 4 hours to complete.
Time: 4 Hours
SIR Interventional Radiology Research Training (ITROP)
The Society of Interventional Radiology, USA have created a programme that aims to equip students and trainees with core research skills. This is a 10-week program that consists of one lecture per week, each focusing on a different research skill. The course is free for SIR members (membership free for students, $50/year for doctors in training).
Time: 10 weeks
