This publication, describes a discipline-based project that was part of the Enhancement Theme programme on Research-Teaching Linkages: enhancing graduate attributes.

The project was concerned with the degree to which research skills can be developed in regulated vocational programmes such as those for medicine, dentistry and veterinary medicine. The project aimed to identify research-teaching linkages in the three disciplines and provide examples of good practice, in order to permit an understanding of high-level graduate attributes and how best to support and promote the achievement of such attributes. Information for this project report was gathered from structured interviews carried out with faculty members from all disciplines, and data collected at a Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Medicine Symposium on Research-Teaching Linkages. The report presents a snapshot of current practice and opinion on the degree to which research skills can be developed in regulated vocational programmes such as medicine, dentistry and veterinary medicine. It provides policy recommendations at both school and national levels.
