London GP Trainee Conference 2017

London GP Trainee Conference 2017
Welcome to the London GP Trainee Conference 2017 with a theme of 'innovation'. This year’s conference for London GP trainees promises to inspire and we look forward to welcoming you all. We all have great ideas and talents – but our dilemma is how do we use them? How do we empower ourselves to make a difference and make the most of our GP training? Your day will start with thought-provoking talks from the Head of GP Development at NHS England Dr Robert Varnam and the RCGP Chair Prof Helen Stokes-Lampard. Afterwards you can delve into our interactive workshops, ranging from top tips on starting a career in GP, to how you can practically bring your ideas to reality. Our poster competition will allow winners to have the chance to give an oral presentation and be published in the London Journal of Primary Care. For further details and submission available here. The deadline for abstract submission is Sunday 11th June 2017 at 23:59. Presenters will be notified if they have been selected by email by the 27th June 2017. Be sure not to miss our final panel discussion, where you will meet our trailblazers – those who have succeeded in shaping a career that combines their individual interests with clinical work. At the end of the day we will be holding a Networking Reception as an opportunity for you to integrate with our esteemed speakers on an informal basis. Make sure you make your workshop selections upon registration, as capacity is limited and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Brief descriptions of the workshops are below.
