Academic Training in Undergraduate Medicine (ATRIUM) are pleased to announce our 10th National Undergraduate Conference: Tomorrow’s doctor: clinician, teacher or scientist?
This year’s theme will explore the evolving role of doctors. With the permeation of academia into clinical medicine, we are likely to see growing involvement of all physicians (not just clinical academics) in research, teaching and leadership roles in addition to their clinical duties. It is important that our future doctors are encouraged to acquire the requisite knowledge and practical skills to adapt to these changing needs.
Through a series of talks from renowned academics from diverse specialties, we hope to showcase how careers in clinical medicine can be combined with research, education and other interests. This will be complemented by our themed workshops, wherein students can participate in discussions about various facets of research and education. Last but by no means least, we would like to invite medical students to present the outcomes of their own research projects at a National level.
