On 8 May, the Faculty of Occupational Medicine and University College London (UCL) are jointly hosting an event entitled ‘The importance of Health, Work and Well being in the Medical School Curriculum’. The aim of the event is to help raise the profile of the important issue of Occupational Medicine in medical school curriculums. We hope to demonstrate the benefit to students and schools of including Occupational Medicine alongside the core medical curriculum, using examples from UCL and other UK medical Schools.
We hope to attract a wide range of participants who can assist us to raise the profile of Health, Work and Wellbeing in medical school curriculums. If you teach in a medical school or have any Occupational Medicine input into medical school curriculums, we would like to invite you to this event. You are also welcome to pass this invite to any contacts or colleagues who you feel may be able to contribute. The event is only for members with links to medical schools.
The programme features a series of high-profile speakers, including Sir Terence Stephenson, Chair of the GMC and Dame Carol Black. It is free of charge and 5 CPD points are available to relevant participants.
Lunch will be provided at the venue, as well as refreshments throughout the day. A copy of the full programme can be accessed here.
