We are a multidisciplinary team who provide training and support for the development of surgical trials and future trialists. We draw upon the considerable methodological and practical trials expertise in Oxford including six accredited trial units, statistical, ethical, health economic, systematic review, clinical network resources and the IDEAL collaboration.
