ONLINE EARLY CAREER RESEARCHERS WORKSHOP
The Early Career Researchers Workshop is open to all member and non-member Clinical Fellows / PhD Students, Clinical Lecturers, Intermediate Fellows and Research Active Consultants (Pre-CCT). We warmly encourage non-members to join the Association and enjoy the benefits of membership.
The Early Career Researchers Workshop is a vital chance to on focus practical themes as part of in-depth conversations.
This year we are putting together a very exciting programme for the Early Career Researchers Workshop. We will run two workshops: one on grant writing and a second aimed at providing coaching on presentation skills. We will also have a session focussing on the career paths available and more general career advice from academic clinicians. In addition, we will arrange several presentations from current intermediate fellows. Our overall aim is to provide an interesting and informal programme, which will genuinely be helpful to those interested in pursuing careers as academic physicians.
The Association is also keen to accept others who may benefit from the Workshop. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be considered for a place but do not meet the eligibility criteria.

Thinking of attending the Early Career Researchers Workshop?
Why not read a summary of proceedings from the 2019 Workshop:
Prior to the Annual Meeting, the association held its popular annual Early Career Researchers Workshop. This is targeted at Clinical Fellows /PhD Students, Clinical Lecturers, Intermediate Fellows and Research Active Consultants within the first five years of their appointment as consultant.
The session proved extremely lively and interactive with a line-up of speakers addressing some key cross-cutting issues across research disciplines. Robert Semple, Professor of Translational Molecular Medicine, University of Edinburgh, Scotland, welcomed around 60 early researchers gathered to hear experts and senior editors of medical journals share thoughts and lead discussion around research integrity and publication ethics.
