Welcome to the June issue of RSM Engage, the digital magazine for members of the Royal Society of Medicine.
In this issue, infectious diseases and microbiology specialist registrar Dr Sarah Filson talks about her time as an RSM Trustee as she concludes her term as Trainee representative on the Society’s Council; and our Day in the life of… series continues with Dr Mimi Malhotra who talks about life as a clinical fellow during her 12-month stint with the Health Foundation.
Two recent guests at the RSM’s In Conversation Live webinar series, senior health leader Mark Britnell and former England and Arsenal football player Tony Adams, offer different perspectives on their contributions to healthcare; and ahead of his participation at an important RSM event exploring long Covid, physiotherapist Dr David McWilliams describes the reality of life on the wards looking after the complex needs of these patients.
There’s a glimpse inside the world of preparing for extreme and elite sport events, and in the latest commentary published by the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, a group of population health, demographic, epidemiology and behavioural scientists propose an approach to tackling the behavioural and socio-demographic factors behind vaccine hesitancy.
Former RSM President Mr B Sethia explains what it means to him to join the distinguished ranks of RSM Honorary Fellows and in other Society News there’s an update on the recent re-election of Professor Nik Patel as Chairman of the Academic Board.
The next issue of RSM Engage will be out in the summer. In the meantime, we hope you can spend some time reading these latest updates from the RSM community.
