Medical Student Day


The Medical Student Day at our Virtual Congress is for undergraduates and junior doctors and is free to attend for both members and non-members this year. The sessions running throughout the day deliver insight into orthopaedic surgery and provide a glimpse of life as an orthopaedic surgeon, including information on various career pathways.

The day is designed to provide attendees an understanding of the different types of consultant posts which are possible, and the pros and cons of academic, military, UK and overseas careers.

What lessons should we be taking from other outbreaks, and also beyond epidemiology? And much more.
