Clinical practice is governed by evidence based practice, but I'm interested in how much focus is placed on original research and other "extra-curricular" activities (i.e. teaching, mentorship) as part of your medical training in other parts of the world?
In the process of learning all the theoretical and clinical knowledge to work as a physician, sitting relevant board examinations and taking on other responsibilities may seem daunting. In Australia, there is a trend towards more junior doctors and medical students taking on research projects and formal teaching concurrent to their clinical work.
Is this a trend seen around the world? And do others feel these are skills more useful at a training or more established level?
