This year’s Yorkshire & the North Discover GP conference in partnership with NHS Health Education England will explore the exciting, dynamic and rewarding career that is general practice. Join us in exploring the wonderful diversity associated with the profession, learn more about becoming a GP and discuss the career with a variety of high profile GPs.

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 special interest. Workshops will cover a wide range of GP related topics such as sexual health, human trafficking, caring for the homeless, academic general practice and public health. The opening conference plenary will be provided by Sir Sam Everington and the day will conclude with 'GP Question Time'.

This day long conference will be hosted by the University of Sheffield GP Society, working in conjunction with the University of Leeds and Hull York Medical School GP Societies. Medical students from local universities - Durham, Leeds, HYMS, Newcastle and Sheffield - will be welcome to attend. Local foundation doctors will also be welcome.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided. FREE transport is included from all universities in the region. Book here by Tuesday 27 February.

This event is part of a UK-wide conference roadshow. If you would like to attend a Discover GP conference in another region of the country, you can find your nearest event here.
