Psychiatric trainees' research experiences and activities in the Eastern region of Ireland

  • John Quinn (a1) and David Meagher (a2)
Abstract

A questionnaire addressing various aspects of research activity was administered to 172 trainees in the Eastern region of Ireland. An 80% (n=138) response rate was achieved. While 98% of trainees regarded research activity as important, almost half rated their research opportunities as poor. The commonest reasons cited for doing research included c.v. enhancement, personal interest and consultant pressure. The most frequently reported problems in doing research were time allocation, funding and adequate supervision.
