Essential Updates in Therapeutics – Study Day

The essential updates in therapeutics study day is brought to you by the team behind the MSc/PgDip/PgCert in therapeutics.

Our annual event is consistently very highly evaluated and aims to provide practitioners with a forum to update their knowledge on key topics in primary care. This is achieved through a series of short, informative, interactive lectures incorporating case studies and the opportunity for discussion with colleagues and peers.

Your learning will be supported by copies of all of the programme materials to take away, as well as ample opportunity for networking and interprofessional discussion.
