Highlights for AiTs

We asked the chair of the RCGP’s AiT Committee, Dr Sophie Lanaghan, to choose her highlights from the concurrent sessions planned for this year’s conference in Glasgow. Here’s her top three sessions:

  • How we can all be the David Attenboroughs of the GP world: Role modelling in medical training (Friday F6)
  • Work as a health outcome – helping people stay at work, the future of fit notes and opportunities for GPs in occupational medicine (Thursday B5)
  • Developing practical leadership skills in GP trainees (Saturday G3)
