Research Day February 2011
40 trainees attended the third annual Research Day The primary aims of the Research Day are to encourage trainees to get involved in research academia and to help them attain their research competencies as published by the Royal College of Psychiatrists. To this end, several speakers outlined the current and near-future research trials within the Wessex Deanery with which trainees can get involved.
For the second year running, a competition for the best podium and poster presentations was held to encourage trainees’ active participation in the meeting. With 14 abstracts submitted, the competition was intense but lively. Most of the presenters were of similar high standards and the eventual winners were just a whisker different from the others. The prize for the best podium presentation went to Dr Kayode Osanaiye, ST4 in old age psychiatry, and the best poster presenter to Dr Eleanor Fellows, CT1 trainee.
