about this event

This meeting provides an insight into respiratory medicine for students and junior trainees who are interested in pursuing it as a career. It is also relevant for senior trainees who are looking to sub-specialise and need advice on tailoring their CV.

The event will feature a number workshops which attendees will rotate through every 30 minutes, one of which has a unique practical station. Don't miss this opportunity to practise bronchoscopy on a dummy, kindly provided by Aquilant Services.

Delegates will be divided into groups with colleagues at at a similar level of training. This format will enable more interaction and discussion giving delegates the opportunity to ask questions. Following this, the drinks reception will provide a valuable opportunity to mingle with trainees and speakers.
