The postgraduate medical centres run a series of regular lecture programmes on a term-by-term basis. 

GP lectures

During term time, GP lectures are held on a weekly basis. The lectures provide clinical updates to local GPs plus hospital staff. See GP education and events

These lectures count towards your continuing professional development (CPD), and following each lecture, the postgraduate medical centre sends out CPD certificates electronically so that they can be uploaded to revalidation portfolios.

Hospital lectures

During term time, hospital lectures are held on a weekly basis. The lectures provide general updates for hospital doctors and other healthcare professionals.

Lectures are held on Thursday lunchtimes between 1-2pm in the Whitehall Lecture Theatre, Education Centre at St Helier Hospital. A pre-lecture lunch is normally provided from 12.30pm.

Grand Round presentations

Grand Round presentations, held at both Epsom and St Helier, are now being catalogued by the Library and Information Services. The aim of this is to improve the sharing of medical expertise across both hospitals to inform patient care and enhance our clinical practice. We hope this will be of particular benefit to our doctors in training.
