Masterclass in Paediatric Gastroenterology - RCPCH accreditation sought
Following the success of our last 3 courses, we are delighted to announce the 4th Cambridge Masterclass in Paediatric Gastroenterology, which will be held on 8th & 9th September 2016 at Trinity Hall, Cambridge. Delegate social events include a drinks reception in Cherry Tree Court, punting on the River Cam and a Gala Dinner at Trinity Hall.
Once again, we received excellent feedback from delegates and faculty last year so we aim to keep the overall format of our course. Hence, we will provide a mixture of formal lectures, seminars, practical sessions and opportunities to ‘meet the experts’ in small discussion groups.
Importantly, there will be ample time for informal discussions with an international faculty.
We invite submissions of poster abstracts for our poster competition which will form an integral part of the day. Abstracts should not exceed 300 words. Authors of the five best posters will be invited to deliver a five minute presentation to our audience which will comprise practitioners at the forefront of paediatric gastroenterology. The best five posters selected for display will entitle delegates to a 50% discount on masterclass fee. The poster application form can be accessed by clicking here. Completed application forms and abstracts should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than Monday 15th August 2016. Start planning your poster submission now!
