About this event

  • Date and time Sat 10 Jun 2023 from 8:30am to 5:30pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Students

Attend this conference to gain insight into recent breakthroughs, development and innovation in both medical and surgical specialties through talks from world-leading speakers.

Within the undergraduate medical curriculum students have limited exposure to what the future of medicine and surgery will look like. The purpose of this event is to equip tomorrow's doctors with the knowledge of current innovations that will transform the delivery of healthcare for the better.   

During the conference, there will also be a chance for students to develop their competencies across medical and surgical skills with unique practical workshops. 

Attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the latest discoveries and trends in medical/surgical specialties
  • Develop medical/surgical skills and experience the use of innovative technology with hands-on workshops
  • Have the opportunity to present their work to leading clinicians
  • Network with other medical students to form connections for the future
