Research to make your CV look better?

My story with research!

What got me into research? “A joke” What is a double blind study? Two orthopaedic surgeons reading an ECG

Applied to McMaster University (MSc in Health Research Methodology) in 2002 • Raised a few eyebrows • Both at the program & back home • I got a reply “your qualifications did not meet our standards”! • Signed by Dr. Geoff Norman • Despite: • Bachelor with honor • Academic position • High scores MCCEE, USMLE, TOEFL

Re-Applied in 2003! • Same qualifications • But with: • Better personal statement • Two research projects in progress • 2nd Best Project in Orthopaedic Program, 3rd in all Surgical Programs • Got accepted • I picked Dr. Geoff Norman as the MSc Supervisor

A year later!

Lessons Learnt 1. Don’t get discouraged by people making fun of you 2. Don’t allow people to let you down 3. You will be rejected one day somewhere, be persistent & fix YOUR problems

Medical Students WILL shape the future of medical research in Saudi Arabia

Change starts with simple ideas! (by medical students) Abdulelah Nuqali Doaa Melebari Hattan Badr

Simple ideas turn into national initiatives @Nayef Dajim proposed the concept of Research Summer School when he was a medical student

The first orthopaedic RCT in the region started by a 2nd year orthopedic resident (Dr. Husam Al-Rumaih) @alrumaih

@KAMCResearch (Makkah)

What kind of research can you do? • Quantitative Research • Qualitative Research • Mixed-methods Research

Why do we need to do research “locally”? • Genetic • Ethnic • Psychosocial • Cultural • System • Economic Different
