What is professionalism?

The term "professionalism" describes how we behave and function within our roles as a clinicians or student clinician. Clinical training provides us with technical know-how, while professionalism training teaches us how to manage our responsibilities, and how we function and behave in and around the workplace.

Is this conference only for people who teach healthcare students?

No - the conference is aimed at all healthcare professionals and students. Every perspective matters, and it's very important that everyone has a voice to shape our training in this important aspect of practice.

What sort of oral and poster abstracts can I submit?

We welcome submissions on any aspect of professionalism, including formal research as well as less formal reports of work-in-progress, reflections on professional experiences, and descriptions of programmes to support professional development at any level.

Are CPD points available?

We have applied for external CPD approval via the Royal College of Physicians. Certificates will be available to all delegates who attend the event.

Are funded places available?
