This year’s Scotland Discover GP conference will explore the exciting, dynamic and rewarding career that is general practice. Join us in traversing the wonderful diversity of the profession, learn more about becoming a GP and discuss the career with a variety of high profile GPs and trainees.

The Discover GP Conference will include a varied programme of workshops and talks providing plenty of opportunities to hear from, meet and network with junior doctors, GP trainees and career GPs including GPs with a special interest. Conference plenaries will be provided by Dr John Dunn, BBC One’s Dr Rangan Chatterjee, and an MSP debate on the future of General Practice and the NHS. The day will conclude with the inaugural Perry Harrison Lecture by Dr Miles Mack and a drinks reception.

This day long conference will be hosted by the University of Edinburgh GP Society, welcoming medical students from local universities - Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Queens University Belfast and St Andrews.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided. FREE transport is included from all universities in the region. Book here by Tuesday 6 March
