What is MedTrack?
This research project, funded by the HRB and conducted by the RCSI, aims to design and implement Ireland’s first longitudinal medical career tracking study through ascertaining, analysing and tracking the career choice and decisions of Irish medical graduates. In 2016-17, we conducted a baseline survey of all Final Med students’ career intentions. In 2017, we conducted a second survey to which 1,500 NCHDs responded that measured the costs of postgraduate training. We disseminate our research findings rapidly to the national stakeholders, including NCHD representatives.
