Clinical oncology webinars

Our webinars are facilitated by leading experts and cover various hot topics and essential training issues. Each webinar is approximately 60 minutes and RCR members will have the opportunity to interact live with speakers and fellow participants. CPD credits will be awarded and for those unable to participate, recordings are available under previous webinars (member login is required).

Clinical oncology summer school series 

As a gesture to the UK oncology trainees who have been deployed to support the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr Frances Yuille, Medical Director of Education and Training and the RCR professional learning and development team have created a programme of one-hour teaching sessions which will be shown as live webinars to ensure oncology trainees have access to further education to hopefully compensate for any disruptions over the past few months. 

These will be recorded and made available for colleagues not able to join the live session, and for non-RCR members. The links will be published under previous webinars (member login is required).

Confirmed webinars are listed below, but many more will be added to this schedule over the coming days and weeks, so please check regularly for updates.

Pause to create - ‘Inspiring doctors to enrich their clinical practice through the proven benefits of creativity’

A series of 5 weekly events running from 19 August to 14 September 2020
These events provide an opportunity for you to relax away from the stresses of everyday life in medicine, to explore new creative experiences, or rediscover those that have been long been forgotten. You will be able to learn about the evidence behind the benefits of creativity on mental wellbeing through the experiences of others who already utilise the humanities in their personal and professional lives. Through these events we hope you will leave feeling inspired and able to take some of the ideas with you to put into practice.

Monday 7 September 2020, 19:30-20:30 (BST)

Please have a pen and paper ready for this. We will analyse these drawings and use them to make a manifesto of our values at work.
