STARsurg IMAGINE Application Form Deadline Extended: 14th November 5 pm!! (Kings Mill Hospital only)
We are looking for collaborators at Kings Mill Hospital for either of the first two study periods.

What is STARsurg?
The Student Audit and Research in Surgery (STARSurg) collaborative is a national, student-led audit and research network. It empowers students to participate in high quality academic projects, forming links with supervising junior doctors and consultants.
Through this, students contribute data to national studies while gaining an understanding of clinical academia, audit and research methodology, and ethical considerations.
All collaborators of STARsurg projects will receive a PubMed-citable co-authorship. Previous STARsurg projects have been published in the British Journal of Surgery.

This year’s project IMAGINE: Ileus MAnaGement INtErnational: An international, observational study of postoperative ileus and provision of management after colorectal surgery is STARsurg’s most ambitious project yet.

This is a prospective study where collaborators will follow-up patients who have undergone colorectal resections on the colorectal wards. Patients will be followed up daily (including weekends) till their discharge.
