Thank you!


Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the first UK wide study of the impact on gender on autonomy in orthopaedic training.

Response has been excellent, with over 230 trainees from all across the UK submitting data and being granted collaborative authorship. We will announce the results of the grand prize of £500 for the best recruited deanery (by percentage), and runner up prizes of £200 for the subsequent 5 deaneries very soon!

Feel free to browse around to see our inspiration from the current literature, check out the abstract from our pilot study in the East of Scotland deanery, look at the protocol for the study, and even meet the team.

Thanks again, and keep an eye out for future projects from the group.
