Regional Training Days – 2021/22 cycle – dates confirmed and volunteers needed!

The LSP Education team have been working hard on the 21/22 Regional Training Day programme, held in conjunction with the Royal Society of Medicine.  COVID led us to convert the study days into online webinars, and we have made the decision to continue in a fully virtual format until next year.  We are hopeful that we can be face to face again from April 2022!

The study days are organised and hosted by trainee volunteers with an interest in that subspecialty (Grid or SPIN, or aspiring towards either of these), supported by the three Curriculum Delivery TPDs:  Jane Runnacles, Caroline Scott-Lang and Matko Marlais.  Trainees have previously found this to be a rewarding experience and it is great for networking as well as a fantastic addition to your CV.  If you would like to be involved in organising an RSM study day, please contact the relevant TPD and they will help you:
