All registrars, specialty tutors, academic, educational and activity supervisors in the South West are invited to this virtual CPD training event.

This event is new to the Public Health Training Programme agenda and has been developed following the postponement and cancellation of the Scientific Conference, Annual Training Conference and Development School.  The online session will act as this year’s annual update for Educational and Academic Supervisors to ensure they remain accredited.  Activity Supervisors are also invited to join.

For those who are unable to join, the session will be recorded to view after the event.

The event will take place virtually via MS Teams and registration is now OPEN.  Please complete the form below to register your attendance. The MS teams link will be circulated nearer the time with the event joining instructions.
