The postgraduate medical centres run a series of regular lecture programmes on a term-by-term basis.
Junior Doctor Listening Events
As the situation with COVID-19 rapidly develops, lots of junior doctors have questions and are understandably feeling anxious
about this global pandemic. Whilst we all want to do what’s best for our patients, it is natural to feel worried at this time. We need to look out for our colleagues and support each other more than ever.
Rachel Emery (Chief Registrar) - ST5 Elderly is starting the Epsom and St Helier Junior Doctor Listening Events starting on Monday 23 March 1pm (St Helier Doctors Mess) and Wednesday 25 March (Epsom Doctors' Mess).
The Twitter hashtag is: #HowYouDoing

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.
