Swansea University is delighted to be headline sponsor at this year’s MediWales NHS Connect Conference. The health and life science event is being held on July 2 at Swansea University Bay Campus’s Great Hall and will see NHS colleagues from across Wales, local companies and the wider industry sector will join to share clinical innovation in practice to improve patient outcomes.
The conference, which will welcome NHS Director General Andrew Goodall as its keynote speaker, aims to showcase the excellent work being carried out by the health and care communities in Wales, improve collaborative working between the health boards, industry and research communities, raise the profile of NHS Wales and clinical innovation across the UK and also support closer working relationships between industry, NHS and research groups and clinical trials capabilities.
Swansea University Medical School will be on hand during the conference to talk to NHS staff about opportunities to study at a postgraduate level. The Medical School’s postgraduate education is designed to fit around the lives of busy health professionals.
The Medical School offers a flexible, modular framework which allows you to study part-time Master’s Degrees, Postgraduate Diplomas and Postgraduate Certificates as well as giving you standalone CPD and online distance learning options.
