A survey study of trends in adult nephrology advanced training in Australia and New Zealand

We would like to invite current nephrology trainees as well as consultant nephrologists who have qualified since 2014 to participate in our survey.

This survey aims to examine the current state of adult nephrology advanced training in Australia and New Zealand. Your experience and views on training and employment will help us identify potential issues and understand advanced training, career paths and employment prospects in nephrology.

Trainees must be completing the majority of their adult nephrology advanced training in Australia or New Zealand and consultants must have completed the majority of their adult nephrology training in Australia or New Zealand to be eligible. Participation is entirely voluntary. All answers you provide are anonymous and the survey will take you approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.

Ethics approval has been obtained and has been reviewed and approved for distribution to ANZSN Members by the ANZSN Honorary Executive.
