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

The timetable for the next series of lectures will be published on these pages soon.

Grand round presentations
Grand round presentations, held at both Epsom and St Helier, are 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.
