Life as a Clinician Scientist events aim to encourage and inspire medical students, junior doctors and early career researchers to become involved in research, and workshop the skills necessary to succeed in combining clinical practice with medical research.

Forthcoming events

Not only do clinician scientists bring invaluable skills that allow them to solve clinical questions and provide deep scientific insights into human biology, their work has a major impact on improving clinical care. We showcase the many pathways that can lead to this exciting and rewarding career, which leads to a lifetime of challenge, discovery and fulfilment.

At these events, our Fellows and other researchers share their stories about how the unique combination of clinical medicine and science allow them to work with patients and take their insights from the bedside to answer fundamental scientific questions, then translate them back to improving patient care.

Why attend?

These are just some of the things our attendees have said about past events:
