Newcastle seminar “Volunteering: Barriers and Benefits”

Global Health Advocacy seminar, with the Royal College of Physicians

Date:  Monday 16th March, 18:30 – 20:00 with a drinks reception afterwards

Venue:  Education Centre, Freeman Hospital, High Heaton, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE7 7DN

Taking our usual format of an interactive discussion, the panel will comprise speakers with backgrounds ranging from medical education and workforce planning to frontline clinical care in Sierra Leone and elsewhere.  This seminar will aim to examine the challenges doctors face when volunteering abroad, for example with securing time out of training, pensions, and revalidation.  What support exists for doctors looking to volunteer overseas?  How can volunteering overseas affect an individual doctor’s training, as well as medical capacity in the UK and abroad?

Confirmed speakers include:

Professor Richard Walker, RCP/Northumbria Healthcare NHS FT/Newcastle University

Mrs Brenda Longstaff, Head of International Partnerships, Northumbria Healthcare NHS FT

Dr Gareth Lewis, Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health/Alma Mata

Dr. Michael Stark, UK Cross-Government Overseas Volunteering Project

Free to attend!  Email international@rcplondon.ac.uk to reserve a place.
