South West Public Health Virtual Training Conference 2021

Category: Regional Public Health Events - Other

Date: October 21st 2021 10:00am until 3:00pm

Location: via MS Teams


All registrars, specialty tutors, academic, educational and activity supervisors in the South West are invited to this virtual conference. The aim of the event is to take stock of the past year’s training activities whilst looking forward and planning for next year. Key points from the day’s discussions will be fed back to the Academy Board for consideration in planning for the development of the Specialty Training Programme locally.

Part of the virtual event will act as the 2021/22 annual update for Educational and Academic Supervisors to ensure they remain accredited.  Activity Supervisors are also invited to join.
