There are two trainees' meetings a year, providing trainees with the opportunity to hear lectures on topical issues given by a range of experts, as well as providing a chance to network and contribute to debate. In 2020, the Spring Meeting was postponed with the Autumn Meeting being held in a virtual format. A prize is awarded by the panel for the best presentation.
In 2021 the Spring Meeting will be held in Manchester.
