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.
Special lecture series: PGMC GP webinar series
The Epsom and St Helier Medicine Team and the Surrey Downs GP Tutor are running a series of lunchtime talks provided by hospital consultants to Sutton and Surrey Downs GPs. The timetable for the next series of lectures will be published on this page soon.
Virtual hospital lectures
During term time, hospital lectures are held on a weekly basis via Zoom. The lectures provide general updates for hospital doctors and other healthcare professionals. The Winter Term Hospital Lecture Series will be available shortly.

Virtual grand rounds
Grand Round lectures are held on a weekly basis every Thursday via Zoom .
St Helier Grand Round run from 8.30am - 9.30am and Epsom Grand Round run from 1pm - 2pm.
Grand round lectures consist of interesting case presentations and are aimed at an audience across all specialties and grades. Contact Nevena Hristova (GP Training Scheme Coordinator) at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for the meeting link and the lecture topic details.
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.
