Rheumatology as a career - Taster Day

The British Society for Rheumatology is running free Rheumatology Taster Days across the UK with one at the iconic V&A Dundee on Saturday 16 November 2019 from 10:00-15:00 to promote rheumatology as a career. Changes to medical school curricula and postgraduate training have resulted in medical students, junior doctors and allied healthcare professionals having limited exposure to rheumatology.

Because of this, we've organised a series of taster days across the UK, giving participants an understanding of what it's like to work in rheumatology, opportunities to network with rheumatologists, GPs and other MDT members, and to meet rheumatology patients.

The #RheumTasterDay is free to attend. Full programme and registration via Eventbrite. Short bite size presentations will be followed by a hearty lunch and some Scottish sweet treats before breaking out into hands on taster workshops in the afternoon.
