Abstract
Aims and Method

Following the introduction of a new research mentoring process, a survey was conducted of Wessex specialist registrars' views on research training.

Results

Of 34 respondents, 26 (76.5%) had agreed a plan with a research mentor and 31 (91.2%) were making good use of their research day for specified purposes. Of 24 trainees undertaking research, 21 (87.5%) felt adequately supported, 20 (83.3%) were interested in their research, 16 (66.7%) enjoyed it and 21 (87.5%) gained research knowledge/skills.

Clinical Implications

Agreeing a research training plan with a mentor, coupled with regularly reviewed support and supervision through a newly developed mentoring process, was associated with high levels of trainee satisfaction. Compared with a previous survey, these results indicate considerable improvement in research training.
