    Hi Sri, we will hopefully have a detailed article on this topic soon. However, I will try to give you some general guidance.

    Research can be carried out within both primary care practice, as well as hospitals, and there are many avenues you can look into depending on what level of research involvement you would like.

    If you’re looking at hospital based practice, then you can look into a specialty training pathway, ideally via (but not limited to) an academic route such as an ACF. On the other hand there are also primary care research pathways available. I would suggest looking at the NIHR website, as well as looking into primary care ACF training positions. Finally, you can also consider an MSc programme which would have a research element.
