Cambridge Medicine is organising a new training day aimed at Cardiology trainees - The Cardiology Masterclass.

This course aims to equip cardiology trainees with the skills to tackle the real-world clinical problems they face every day. It is mapped to the Specialty Training syllabus and will be delivered by highly experienced Papworth hospital cardiologists, who have faced these challenges themselves.

Sessions will cover a variety of inpatient and outpatient cardiological topics.

Whether you are contemplating cardiology training, or you are a trainee looking for the edge that will make your life easier, this course is for you.

The course will take place on Saturday 9th September 2017 in the Friends House (King's Cross, London) and costs £150.

The next annual research symposium of the BHF Oxbridge CRM will take place on Friday 29 September 2017 at the Royal Society.

Similarly to previous years, this event will be free but we will need to restrict the number of delegates due to the venue size, and advance registration will be essential. Registration instructions will be sent to CRM investigators and recruits closer to the meeting date.

Programme has been copied below and can be downloaded here.

Please contact Katja if you have any questions about this event.

We will host an Early Careers Event in the McGrath Centre, St Catharine's College.

This year's event will take place on Thursday 2nd November, and will be a collaboration between Cardiovascular SRI and Metabolic SRN to help connect researchers in these two networks. As usual, the event will be open to all with focus on researchers in the early stages of their careers.

This event is free but we will be restricted to 100 delegates by the venue size and we will therefore ask you to register - registration will open closer to the date.

If you would like to talk about your research or present a poster, please fill in an abstract submission form (linked here closer to the date) and send to by Friday 15 September 2017.

Previous years' programmes are available for 2015 and 2016. This year's programme will be copied below. Hope to see you on 2nd November!
