Cambridge University Press
Publication Date :

Doctors and other health professionals are increasingly drawn towards research in the course of their training, often with little guidance on the skills, techniques and personal qualities required of a medical research worker. This short and helpful book has been written by three authors with long experience of performing and evaluating research in medicine. It provides essential advice for the beginner, covering in a practical and accessible fashion all the steps involved from choosing a research project to preparing and submitting a thesis. Now in its second edition, many important revisions have been made including updates on the use of computers, career implications, degree structures and ethical issues in human and animal experimentation. The illustrations by David Langdon provide a wry commentary on the ups and downs of life in research.
