Sharing Best Practice in Undergraduate Medical Education

In the face of unprecedented challenges in delivering undergraduate medical education, NHS Trusts across West Yorkshire have provided excellent opportunities for students to develop their knowledge, clinical skills, and professional practice, as well as enhancing student support provision through innovative work and projects.

MEET UP provides a platform to share best practice, network, and collaborate with colleagues across the West Yorkshire region, so that we can all continue to provide the best educational opportunities for medical students in a sustainable way.

The Conference will involve a mixture of presentations, workshops, breakout rooms with topical discussions, posters, and networking, all of which will be highly relevant to all involved in undergraduate medical education across the region.

MEET UP is absolutely free, and lunch and refreshments will be provided.
