Welcome to the February 2021 issue of RSM Engage, the digital magazine for members of the Royal Society of Medicine.

In this issue Chairman of our Academic Board, Professor Nik Patel, reports on the progress made by the Society on the road towards digital education, and RSM Trustee Professor Linda Luxon highlights the health emergency of climate change, ahead of a new webinar series, to be opened by HRH The Prince of Wales next month.

Final year medical student Brian Wang gives his account of working as a volunteer vaccinator at the Wembley Vaccination hub while revising for his finals, while a group of medical educators working across both undergraduate and postgraduate education write of the urgent need to make up for lost time in teaching and training.

There’s an account of the hidden treasures to be found in the RSM Library, a round-up of forthcoming prize deadlines for trainees and some Society news updates. And finally, there are some super offers available exclusively for RSM members while working and at leisure during lockdown.

We hope you enjoy exploring the articles presented here and look forward to sharing our next collection with you in April.
