RSA Webinar Series for Medical Undergraduates

With the closure of medical schools across the UK, the RCSEd’s Regional Surgical Advisory Network has stepped in with a national effort to offer teaching in the form of webinars. These webinars will be aimed at medical students and will be delivered by experienced trainers from around the UK. The aim is to augment the remote learning medical students will already be having from their individual medical schools.

Each webinar will be broadcast live on Zoom and available to anyone who would like to register, with a recording of the full session available for public access the next day.
