Research activities July 2020

The Department of Medical Education holds regular research events including a weekly research roundtable presented by both our own staff and visitors to the Department.

In July the Department of Medical Education (DME) will be running three research roundtables via Zoom. Note there will be no research events on 2 July or 30 July.

DME graduate research students and academic staff will all be provided with Zoom links to all research events.
