Selection criteria for Australian and New Zealand medical specialist training programs: another under-recognised driver of research waste

Project: Research

Project Details


Doctors are placed under significant pressure to engage in research for career progression. Our review suggests that research selection criteria for specialty training programs incentivise high-volume, CV-padding research, focusing on quantity and authorship position over research quality. These selection criteria may be unintended drivers of research waste.

Project Aims

To examine the research entry requirements of Australian and New Zealand Medical Specialist Training programs.
