PROVIDING RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES TO MEDICAL STUDENTS
WHAT DO WE DO?
LEADERS was established in the belief that academic medicine should be accessible to all students, whatever their stage of training. If you have an interest in research or a future in academic medicine, we are here to help you develop the skills and experience that will allow you to fulfil your potential.
LEADERS WORKSHOP SERIES
On Tuesday the 6th of March LEADERS are hosting a series of talks regarding "Making the Most of Your
Research". Topics covered include self-directed ESREP, research in your intercalation, publishing and organising your own research, doing a research elective and Academic Foundation
Programme. We also have doctors coming in from LICAP (Leeds Institute of Cancer and Pathology) who will talk about their own experiences of doing their own research and will answer any questions you
have on how to do it.
It’s a fantastic opportunity to get advice and speak to students and doctors who have done their own research and learn the top tips on how to get your hard work published.
There is free pizza and certificates will be given if you attend.

WHY IS RESEARCH IMPORTANT?
Research is massively important in the world of medicine – both as a student and as a practicing clinician. The GMC states in Tomorrow’s Doctors that a requirement of medical students is that they are competent in being able to “evaluate and integrate evidence critically”. A way to get involved in research is by undertaking a intercalated degree. Here are a few tips on how to get involved with more research centered intercalated degrees and what you can do with your findings.
