We are keen to support all West Midlands anasthetic/ICM/ACCS trainees in the development and delivery of new project ideas. These can be anything from simple quality improvement initiatives to randomised controlled trials.

WMTRAIN has been established to support large scale data collection, both geographically and across specialties.

We also have a network of research-experienced trainees and consultants who can provide advice and support for novice researchers.

Please contact us for further information.
