Core Skills Course 2018

This popular course is back with a programme packed full of content for rheumatology trainees and consultants.

The course will provide delegates with an educational update as well as the chance to exchange best practice with peers through interactive group workshops.

The course has been organised in collaboration with the Scottish Society for Rheumatology.

Please note: Unfortunately the decision has been made to postpone the health professional stream of this course. We are planning to deliver this in 2019 instead so please keep an eye out on our website for further information.
