About the PSTRN:

The PSTRN is  a national surgical trainee-led research network for UK Paediatric Surgery Trainees. It was set up in 2011 by a group of paediatric surgical registrars following the lead of a number of regional general (adult) surgical research collaboratives.

The PSTRN aims to capitalise on the natural network formed by Surgical trainees rotating between hospitals during their training. A presence in many centres will facilitate multicentre studies. As trainees rotate between centres participating in a study they can maintain their participation in the study in the new centre.

Membership is open to all paediatric surgical trainees in the UK from CT1 onwards. If you wish to get involved, please contact us.
