This webinar will help final year medical students get ready for finals and will prepare nearly and newly qualified junior doctors for common clinical presentations you are likely to face on the acute take.

This seminar is ideal for final year medical students, Foundation interim Year 1 and Foundation Year 1 doctors, and will also be relevant to other trainees involved in the acute take.
