Frequently asked questions
Who can submit research projects to Buildit?
If you are a medical practitioner with college fellowship, and at least five publications as first or senior author, you can sign up for membership with Buildit and submit research projects for doctors in training, that you intend to supervise. Any other medical researcher with a higher degree by research and at least five publications as first or senior author is also eligible to submit.
Doctors in training who are advanced trainees, and would like to give an intern or resident medical officer an opportunity to contribute to any type of research project or case report, can also submit projects to Buildit on behalf of a senior supervisor who meets the above requirements, and has agreed to take ultimate responsibility for the project. The advanced trainee would provide the day-to-day supervision. In order to do this, the advanced trainee should sign up as a Doctor in Training, and select “Yes” to the option to be able to do this.
What type of research projects are suitable for submission?
Projects of all levels of complexity are welcomed; entry-level projects allow doctors in training to make a start with the basic skills of study design, scientific writing and presentation. This includes review papers, case studies and series, laboratory studies and clinical research. The minimum standard for submission is that successful completion of the project is likely to result in national or international conference presentation, or publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
