Study information
The British Urology Researchers in Surgical Training (BURST) research collaborative: a UK-based collaborative, consisting primarily of urology trainees and medical students, is currently running a national study exploring urological teaching and exposure to urology in British medical schools. Here is your chance to be involved in a national project, with an opportunity to be recognised as PubMed Indexed collaborators.

Study details

Exposure to surgery, including Urology, during medical school has considerably decreased in recent years. However, this may be a vital opportunity to obtain Urology teaching, irrespective of future specialty choice. Urological conditions account for 25% of acute surgical referrals, 15% of general practice appointments and as a junior doctor you will have to be able to perform basic urological procedures such as catheterisation.

The aim of this study is to assess the uptake of the British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS) curriculum, published in 2012 with a view of increasing undergraduate urological teaching, amongst medical schools, and to ascertain to what extent and how medical students are receiving teaching in urology. We hope that the results and presentation of this study will result in increased exposure to urology during medical school across the UK, will allow medical students to gain the urology skills they need for their careers and result in an increased number of students interested in a career in urology.

As FY1 doctors, you are in a unique position of having recently completed the urology curriculum at your medical school in its entirety and we value your contribution to this project.

How to get involved

For this project to succeed, we require students and FY1 doctor graduates from each of the various UK medical schools to complete a survey about their urology curriculum. This survey should take around 5-10 minutes to complete.

For FY1 doctors, we aim to recruit FY1 doctor leads representing each of the UK medical schools. Your role will be to:
1. Recruit a minimum of 15 FY1 survey respondents.
2. To liaise with your appointed BURST committee member.

You will be recognised as a PubMed Indexed collaborator, Foundation Year 1 lead subject to fulfilling the aforementioned criteria of recruiting at least 15 FY1 survey respondents. The top overall recruiters will be invited to the main authorship line of the LEARN study.
