JOINT STATEMENT ON ADVANCED TRAINING RESEARCH PROJECT
The IMSANZ-RN strongly encourages the involvement of more than one advanced trainee in the conduct of multicentre collaborative research projects. The Advanced Training Committee (ATC) in General and Acute Care Medicine (GACM) accepts multicentre collaborative research projects for submission of Advanced Training Research Project (ATRP).
Each trainee must meet all the requirements as outlined in the RACP Advanced Training Research Project Guidelines, which can be found in the GACM specialty page, under the ATRP section. The supervisors must attest that each trainee has had significant input into the project.
As an example, in a research study involving 5 centres, a ‘significant input’ into the project for individual trainee at each site should include several of the following activities: defining research problems, contribution to the study question, literature review and critical analysis, development of study design, data collection, data synthesis, analysis and interpretation, and writing up a report specific to individual site, as well as contributing to the final manuscript.
