Trainee Induction & Specialism Day

Every year IPEM hosts an induction day for trainees which is a great networking event for all new trainees as well as specialism and final year trainees. We get very good feedback on this event - apart from meeting fellow trainees in other centres it also introduces attendees to IPEM officers, staff and trainees who started their STP specialism.  The next Induction Day will take place on 11th January 2019 in York - click here for details
