STARSurg empowers students to participate in high quality academic projects, and our educational courses help students gain further understanding of clinical academia, audit and research methodology, and ethical considerations. Our activities include:

  • GeneRAtiNg StUdent Recruiters for Surgical TriaLs (GRANULE) – The aim of this course is to teach medical students how to recruit patients to clinical trials. In doing so, we aim to nurture the next generation of surgical researchers while increasing recruitment to surgical trials. See here for our upcoming courses.
  • Research Skills Courses – These popular, one-day courses equip medical students of any level with many of the fundamental non-technical skills techniques required for success in academia. See here for our upcoming courses.
  • Organising an annual educational conference meeting for medical students. See here for the date.
