Highlights for medical students

Student volunteers at RCGP Conference 2017As a medical student at the RCGP Annual Conference you will gain valuable insights to the life and work options available to you as a GP and meet primary care professionals from across the UK.

This year’s programme includes a new stream on Discovering General Practice (on Friday and Saturday) to help you evaluate the benefits of a career in the specialty, plus sessions on working internationally, getting started in research (Thursday C4) and practising mindfulness in medicine (Thursday C5).

We also have wealth of healthcare innovation and technology on show, including sessions on making NHS data useful to GPs (B6), bringing genomes to life (D6) , and using robots to aid teaching and physical examination (C6).

And our exciting list of plenary speakers includes best-selling author and medical doctor Dr Ben Goldacre who specialises in unpicking the misuse of science and statistics. His first book ‘Bad Science’ has sold over 500,000 copies. Find out more about the plenary speakers confirmed so far.
