The Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) has secured a new collaborative partnership with the British Cardiovascular Society (BCS) which offers career-enhancing benefits to BCS’ almost 3,000-strong membership.
The BCS supports and represents professionals working in the fields of cardiovascular care and research, playing a pivotal role in the delivery of cardiovascular health across the UK since 1922. Its members include the great majority (around 85%) of UK consultant cardiologists as well as specialist registrars and GPs, nurses and other healthcare professionals with an interest in the field.
BCS president Professor John Greenwood said: “The RSM, like the BCS, is over 100 years old, but its roots go back over yet another century. Both organisations were founded on the same philosophy - to bring doctors and scientists together to share experience and provide education. I'm delighted to be able to offer our members a substantial discount on RSM membership, enabling them to take advantage of the RSM's educational content, online library and opportunities for learning and networking, both virtually and in person at their headquarters in central London.”
The RSM is one of the UK’s leading providers of continuing learning for healthcare professionals. Members benefit from a comprehensive range of highly regarded education resources, including a world-leading online library with unlimited access to e-resources and over five major databases; free or discounted meetings and webinars across over 50 specialties, many of which come with CPD accreditation; and the chance to enter prizes and be presented with numerous opportunities to network with colleagues and industry heads within the Cardiology, Cardiothoracic, and Vascular sections, plus other areas of interest. Additionally, RSM members can also enjoy full access to the RSM’s central London premises with its historic library, hotel and other exclusive club facilities.
