A recent paper by Lewis (1991) found authorship of a publication to be the only variable that significantly predicted whether applicants for a senior registrar (SR) rotation in psychiatry at a London teaching hospital were shortlisted. We have re-examined curriculum vitae (CV) predictors of shortlisting at SR level within a comparable London teaching hospital rotation (University College and Middlesex Medical School, UCMSM), and extended the study to examine applicants for the corresponding SHO/registrar (REG) rotation. We have also compared the two groups in terms of demographic data and academic achievements. Our intention was to replicate Lewis' findings, and to examine in more detail the possible predictive effects of academic achievement and ethnicity.
