The National Trainees Conference 2020 is curated for trainees by trainees.

'Setting sail towards clearer horizons': Let the 2020 NTC programme help you navigate your way through the Bermuda Triangle that is the new RCOG core curriculum. Each half-day we’ll take you on a journey through the four 'Professional Identities', dipping your toes into as many 'CiPS' as possible. Included in your ticket is a relaxed opportunity to catch up with crew mates past, present and future at an early evening reception including one alcoholic (or non-alcoholic) drink, food as well as access to a bar.
