This is a fantastic opportunity for any medic that would like to find out a bit more about the medical businesses and learning some essential skills that will allow them to impact medicine positively!

Fast Bleep the Doctor

Posted on by

The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) are holding Fast bleep the doctor: How to survive your first on-call shift on 22 July 2017.

Starting as a newly-qualified doctor can be a daunting time, not least because of the first on-call shifts where the first real leap from medical student to doctor is made. This event aims to provide a convenient overview of the most common calls doctors may see.

Highlights will include:

· managing a first on-call shift and the night shift
· ways of managing common on-call encounters
· how to deal with emergencies in sepsis, cardiology, gastroenterology and respiratory medicine
· key concepts in managing delirium and patients at the end of life whilst on call
· how to make the most of learning whilst on call.

Booking is open now and a full programme will be available online shortly.
