The Evening Medical Update on Tuesday 21 May 2013 will cover Palpitation (see Programme for further details) and will run from 6.30 pm to approximately 8.15 pm.
The popular programme of Evening Medical Updates (EMU) covers “The Top Twenty” common medical presentations as defined in the GIM training curriculum. The 20 topics are covered in a rolling two-year schedule, with updates held monthly between September and June.
Although aimed particularly at core trainees, Evening Medical Updates are open to all hospital doctors, GPs, other healthcare professionals, and medical students. They are free of charge to all groups.
Updates are held at the College in Edinburgh but transmitted live, by video-link, to a number of other centres around the UK (see Contact details for the current list of venues). The programme allows time for discussion and questions with contributions from all centres.
To attend at the College, please book online, or download a registration form.
To attend at one of the video-linked venues, please contact your local centre directly (see Contact details page).
If you are unable to attend at the College or a video-linked site, a limited number of places are available to access the event by live webstreaming. Please contact the Education Co-ordinator Ms Felicity Garvie at firstname.lastname@example.org
