The date and theme of the 10th RMS National Undergraduate Conference for 2020 has been announced! This event is open to undergraduate and postgraduate students from any institution and any background, medical or non-medical.

Sports and exercise have a role to play in almost every aspect of modern medicine. It is almost impossible to think of another ‘therapy’ which has just as many proven benefits of physical activity. Time and time again keeping active has been shown to have a vast array of positive effects on physical and mental health. Encouraging and promoting physical activity forms an important aspect of care for almost all medical specialists. Additionally sporting injuries are common and often require input from a range of medical specialities. For our 10th National Conference, the Royal Medical Society hopes to open a platform for discussing these topics, their role in patient care within the NHS and most importantly, how they can be used to improve patients’ quality of life.

This event will include a wide variety of interesting speakers and interactive workshops from medical, surgical and public health backgrounds to give us an insight into the innovative work being done currently in this field. Students from around the UK will get an opportunity to present their research and showcase the contribution they have made to modern medicine. We welcome students and professionals from all backgrounds to come together and learn about a field of medicine that will undoubtedly form an important part of each and every one of their careers.
