Psychiatry School Conference 2017.

Psychiatry School Conference 2017 - Building for the Future: Driving Quality and Safety through Education

This year’s Psychiatry School Conference is entitled 'Building for the Future: Driving Quality and Safety through Education' and will be held at The Royal Mercure Hotel, Hull on Friday 17th November 2017.

The conference is largely made up of junior doctors and consultant trainers and is a focal point for the School in trying to galvanise us all in a positive way. Last year’s feedback about the group work and the keynote speakers was very positive, so keeping a similar format this time around seems sensible.

This course may be eligible for up to four CPD credits, subject to your peer group approval and in line with the Royal College of Psychiatrists' guidelines

The programme for the conference can be viewed here.
