MRC led this review to understand:

  • the routes by which medical students and clinical trainees first develop an interest in academic careers and gain their first research experience
  • the career pathways they pursue
  • the nature of any enablers and barriers to pursuing a clinical academic career and how individuals can be appropriately supported at critical stages and through the most difficult transitions.
