    How do I... combine formal professional development with the rest of my life

    The decision to undertake formal professional development can be daunting for busy health professional educators, who are often already balancing multiple roles and responsibilities. What offerings exist? Where should I study? What will the time commitment be? How will it actually help my career? Will it make a difference if I’m already in a senior position?

    Join the leads of four respected health professions education programmes in this interactive session to hear about the types of formal professional development available, and discuss the benefits and challenges of further education. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in small group discussion for more personalised reflections and advice.
