Our Conference and Events Team is responsible for organising NSAMR conferences and events. We aim to provide opportunities to medical students all over the country. Our four schemes are the following:
NSAMR has launched its inaugural National Research Course, striving to increase medical student engagement with academic medicine. The one-day event provides access to Keynote Lectures delivered by current leading physician-scientists, providing insights into the integration of research at the frontiers of their fields into clinical practice. Delegates will find opportunities to hone scholarly skills. This will be complemented by an afternoon of workshops designed to increase engagement with experienced facilitators invited from prominent organisations and charities, working to advocate undergraduate involvement in research.
See the event page for more information.
Following on from previous annual events in Edinburgh, Newcastle, Cardiff, Birmingham and Manchester the next conference (2018) will be held in London and hosted by King’s College London’s student medical research society CARS. The 2018 conference will follow on from the previous events and will contain a number of oral presentations, posters, plenary speakers, workshops and participation from local 6th form students. The main focus of this medical student conference is to provide students across the UK with the opportunity to present their work. There is also an opportunity for some selected high-quality work to be published in NSAMR journal. See the event page for this year’s conference for more information.
The aim of the NSAMR Virtual Conference is to provide further opportunities for students to participate in a student research conference, especially for those who are unable to travel. Each society can simply book a room to live-stream the event and students are able to present their work through the internet too. Prizes may be awarded to students based on votes while posters and presentations of a sufficient quality may potentially be invited to the NSAMR Annual Conference 2018 in London. In addition to the above, there is scope for talks and workshops to be held throughout the virtual conference.
The NSAMR events scheme also involves live-streaming of talks. There are two ways that societies can participate: (1) Join a session, or (2) host a session.
To participate in a live-streamed event, the local research society would only need to book a room and invite members. NSAMR would then share the invitation with all societies who have signed up. All talks should ideally be made available online one week later if agreed with the speaker. Following this model, any speaker or workshop coordinator can be located anywhere in the world, providing a large number of medical students with access to some of the best speakers in the world.
Each local university research society is also welcome to apply to host their own live-streamed event. NSAMR is able to provide a small amount of funding to the hosts in order to cover associated costs. These streamed sessions may be journal clubs, workshops, debates, research talks etc.
