This year’s RSM finals study day has gone virtual! The RSM National Finals Conference aims to help final year medical students polish their medical knowledge in time for final exams. 

Focusing on the main specialties, conditions and management plans relevant to the final year medical curriculum, this virtual conference will help medical students prepare for their written examinations and clinical OSCEs.

A multidisciplinary faculty of speakers will offer tips and advice, enabling students to build confidence in recognising and dealing with common medical and surgical presentations, as well as acting on investigation results.

Although aimed at final year medical students, the programme is relevant for students of all years, as well as those who have recently completed their exams and want to refresh their knowledge.

There will also be an opportunity for students to showcase their research posters, with prizes available for the best posters. Find out more and apply below.
