Message from APMJ Conference for Core Medical, Core Surgical, Emergency Medicine, Anaesthetics, ACCS, GP Trainees

 The Association of Palliative Care Juniors Conference 2018

The APMJ consists of medical students and pre-speciality doctors who have an interest in palliative medicine. We hold an annual conference involving many speakers, workshops and poster presentations which has received excellent feedback in previous years.


We have an exciting range of speakers and workshops this year and also have a poster and oral presentation competition which would allow doctors to present their work at our conference. 


We would be grateful if you could send both posters and the abstract submission form (attached) to the pre-speciality doctors. These would primarily be Foundation Doctors, GP Trainees, Core Medical Trainees, Core Surgical Trainees, ACCS, Emergency Medicine and Core Anaesthetic Trainees however any doctors pre-ST3 would be able to attend and enter into our presentation competition. 


Any queries please feel free to email me on this address and I will respond asap.
