Education and training of healthcare professionals

BIRD runs a range of rheumatology related events and meetings for consultants, doctors, clinicians, researchers and healthcare professionals throughout the year. We work closely with a range of health and education providers, including the Royal United Hospital Bath, especially the RNHRD, the University of Bath and the Bath GP Education & Research Trust (BGPERT).  Most of these apply for accreditation from the appropriate body including the Royal College of Physicians and BGPERT, so that when approved this will enable you to gain CPD credits for attending.

To keep up to date with our plans for upcoming meetings, please join our mailing list.
