If there are no streaming sites near you and your hospital is interested in linking to the Updates, please contact Eric Wood;

Please note that not all live-link sites are able to host the live EMUs in-person. If your local site is not hosting you can still access the EMU programme online from home. 

The Evening Medical Updates (EMU) programme covers specialties, presentations and conditions included within the Internal Medicine Training (IMT) curriculum. Within these, we aim to cover topics from a range of clinical settings including the acute medical take, outpatients department, community care and critical care. We also have up to two non-clinical evening updates covering a range of topics, such as medical ethics, law and career resilience in medicine. Topics are covered in monthly updates between September and June of each academic year. 

Each EMU session consists of three or four 30-minute presentations, and the programme allows time for discussion and questions.

Although aimed primarily 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 RCPE Members and Fellows, and to attend at a live-link site (where available). There is a small fee for non-RCPE members who would like to watch the talks from home via individual access. 

Updates are streamed live to a number of live-link sites around the UK and further afield, please see the map above for current active sites and the live-link tab on each event page. Your local site coordinator will be able to advise you on room locations and any other site specific information you need to know.
