Description: This study is the first phase a larger program of work that aims to develop a core research curriculum for Australian and New Zealand specialty trainees. In this curriculum mapping study, we found an emphasis on trainees leading research, rather than using it or participating in it, which does not align with the career trajectory of most doctors. We also found a lack of constructive alignment across all curricula, inadequate research training and project supervision. This, coupled with high numbers of anecdotal reports from trainees, suggests that the current curricula may be contributing to rushed and inadequate research, and disenchantment of trainees. The next phases will explore this further.
