The problem with registrar research

  • Annie E. A. Bartlett (a1) and Lynne M. Drummond (a1)
Extract

In recent years registrars on psychiatric training rotations have been encouraged to begin their research careers early. Most of them are in such (training posts) for three and a half years. A few with extensive previous experience in other areas of medicine will be in post for less than this. The usual pattern of work with such schemes is to change both posts and accompanying routine every six months. At no point during this time will they have time allocated for research per se unless they are a fortunate member of some of the training rotations which include this in the weekly timetable. Such time has to be begged, stolen or borrowed from the hapless consultant who is all too aware of the service shortfall in his or her own area. If the registrar is fortunate enough to find an accommodating senior, this may not be the situation in his or her next post, which renders long term research well nigh impossible.
