Cambridge Medical Seminars started as a bi-annual series of meetings in 2006 and was designed by two Cambridge Consultants from the EMIT Unit (Dr Joseph Cheriyan and Dr Fraz Mir). The series of meetings was designed to update the medical fraternity on the rapidly changing clinical and academic landscape that encompasses general medicine today – at a reasonable cost!
The meetings are only open to qualified doctors and whilst the majority of attendees are specialist trainees or consultants we also see a very healthy percentage of engaged foundation trainees. The meetings are assessed by the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) on an individual basis, but generally attract between 6-8 CPD points depending on the length of the programme. The meetings have a wide range of topics from basic clinical lectures to erudite discussions on the latest advances in clinical sciences from the Cambridge biomedical campus. The meetings are held in a relaxed setting, to enable delegates to ask our speakers questions with confidence. They also provide an opportunity to mingle and network easily with fellow professionals.
The attendance fees for most delegates is heavily subsidised, and we are delighted to receive funding from the East of England Multi-Professional Deanery. Fees are generally about 30% of our costs and those who register early attract special discounts.
