A solid grounding in key research concepts is essential for medical students building an academic career. STARSurg recommends the following videos and slides for learning the core concepts:
Introduction to Medical Statistics
– A short video that outlines the role of statistics (its uses and limitations), review of variable types, descriptive statistics and inferential statistics.
Introduction to Managing a Research Project
– A short video providing one way (of many) to structure a research project, from conceiving, planning, doing and concluding. A great summary before starting on your own research or audit project.
Effective Applications and Interview Techniques
– A short guide to understand the types of potential questions that can be asked in an interview for an academic application, hints and tips on how to approach them, how to present your evidence for these questions and how to prepare prior to interview.
