Programme for UCLH Training Day released

We hope you’re all looking forward to the day on 4th March, hosted by UCLH. See you at The Institute for Sport Exercise and Health (ISEH), Level 1, 170 Tottenham Court Road, W1T 7HA. Please make sure you sign up on Synapse as places are also being offered to trainees in NW and S London. Check the FAQs if you can’t remember how to navigate Synapse.

The day has two themes:

  • Part 1: Environment and the lung: from global warming to exposures at work and home.
  • Part 2: How to survive the next respiratory pandemic, and new frontiers of respiratory support.
