About this event

  • Date and time Wed 20 Feb 2019 from 12:30pm to 5:30pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Medical Genetics, Medics 4 Rare Diseases

This is an RSM and Medics 4 Rare Diseases joint event where clinicians at all stages of their training, will be informed about why rare diseases are important to everyday medicine.

Delegates will get the opportunity to explore how generalists can approach patients with rare diseases, and become advocates for them. Hear a real patient experience, who has 2 rare diseases - one of which was diagnosed during an OSCE. And learn about the role genomics plays in everyday medicine.

Topics include:

  • How rare diseases are relevant to every doctor’s career in medicine
  • The challenges shared by patients with rare diseases and explore how doctors can help them with these
  • The role of genomics in everyday medicine
  • How the work of Medics 4 Rare Diseases and the RSM Genetics Section play a role in rare disease education
