If you think you might be interested in pursuing a career in clinical academia, DCAT strongly recommends that you explore your opportunities! It is important for all doctors to have a basic understanding of research, so even if you eventually decide that devoting a large portion of your time to research by becoming a clinical academic is not for you, research experience will never be time lost! Quite the contrary! You will probably find that your research experience and skills acquired during that time, will benefit your clinical work and enhance your cv. If you would like further information on the opportunities available to you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
