The General Medical Council requires ‘tomorrow’s doctors’ to be scholars, as well as competent practitioners and professionals (GMC, 2009). Therefore, the ability engage with, appraise and contribute to clinical research remains a critical component of the undergraduate medical education, and beyond.
The NSAMR student committee has written several ‘guides’ to be an aid for medical students developing understanding and skills in clinical research. These guides are hoped to be used as a general introduction and to be of some practical help to medical students when encountering and conducting research.
The following guides are available and freely downloadable:

Thanks to NSAMR for producing these guides.
