Research Fish

What is Research Fish?

As a clinical academic you need to register with ResearchFish which is a research outcomes and evaluation system for Research Funders, Researchers and Research organisations.

Trainees have to take responsibility for keeping this up to date, since this not only helps in setting goals for development of important skills and experience but can also provide a useful format for demonstrating evidence of your achievement at your annual progress review.

Publishing is an important part of your educational portfolio. It demonstrates academic ability and commitment, and establishes credibility when you are applying for future grant and fellowship funding. Anything that distinguishes your CV is a bonus, including extra qualifications such as MSc or Diplomas. It is definitely worth talking to your supervisor straight after appointment about small projects, such as case reports or data collection/analysis for existing studies, in which you can participate alongside your main project. This will develop your skills, interest, experience and portfolio.

For further details please see the NIHR Managing your Project and the NIHR ResearchFish Guidance
