Sarah McNab has gone from junior resident all the way through to Director of General Medicine at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne. Along the way she has cemented her place in the paediatric research pantheon with the work that led to her PhD, the PIMS trial. Sarah was really lucky in that her PhD supervisor, Trevor Duke, literally wrote the book on the subject.

Duke T. How to do a postgraduate research project and write a minor thesis. Archives of disease in childhood. 2018 Sep 1;103(9):820-7.

With an involvement in some aspects of research being an integral part of advanced training, whatever the speciality, it is worth considering how to make it actually worth your while.
