Forthcoming UKFPO events

UKFPO/HENE Joint Careers Conference: 13 October 2014 - call for abstracts

Once again the UKFPO and HENE, in conjunction with HEE’s MDRS Careers Group, are once again hosting the annual Careers conference aimed at careers advisors and medical /foundation school faculty. The conference takes place on Monday 13 October 2014, in central Newcastle (venue to be confirmed shortly).

This year, we are expanding the programme to encompass both undergraduate and postgraduate careers, and the day will consist of a range of plenary presentations and workshops, along with a poster presentation.

We are currently inviting submissions of abstracts for posters from medical students, foundation doctors and faculty members. We are primarily looking to showcase examples of evaluated innovative practice in the field of medical careers. Abstracts will be assessed against the following four criteria:

1. Clear description of the problem
2. The methods used to address the problem (including a description of the intervention(s), target population, comparison (if applicable, and outcome measures)
3. The results – are they important?
4. Dissemination – how could this be applied in other settings/what lesson have been learnt.

To submit your abstract please complete the abstract form, and return to by Friday 15th August 2014.

To register your place at the conference, please email your name, job title and organisation to the above email address.
