Cancellation of events until end of May 2020

We are very sorry that, in light of the current global outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the difficult decision to cancel or postpone all of our conferences, courses and events taking place before the end of May 2020.

As outlined in our booking conditions, we regret we are unable to refund any delegate travel and/or accommodation costs if an event is cancelled.

We therefore recommend booking flexible tickets and accommodation where possible for upcoming events that have not yet been postponed or cancelled.

Please see our coronavirus events FAQs for more information

The course is specifically designed for adult learners. It is very interactive, with lots of small group work and breakout sessions. It is essential for all clinical trainers and is led by an expert faculty.

The course will equip you with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to enhance your teaching sessions, to give more effective feedback, improve your assessment technique and give you experience of performing difficult appraisals.

The course is suitable for all consultants and for those trainees in their final 2 years. It is recognised as fulfilling the requirements to be an educational and clinical supervisor. It is also recognised for the theoretical component of the ‘Medical Education’ Advanced Training Skills Module (ATSM).
