Rare Topics in Obstetric Medicine, Fetal Medicine, and Intrapartum Obstetrics, followed by a Pathways into Research session

Tuesday 9th June 2020, 12:30-13:30

“Did you hear, there was a case of …….. at the weekend?”

The trainees’ session returns to the Perinatal conference, with the opportunity to hear about rare topics in obstetrics.

We will be discussing three cases covering maternal medicine, fetal medicine, and intrapartum obstetrics. We are prioritising cases which align with the new ATSM curricula.

Each case will be presented, followed by discussion with the audience and the opportunity to ask our experts questions related to the case.

Following the success of last years ‘pathways to research’ session, we have incorporated this into the trainee’s session this year and following the case presentations there will be a presentation from Dr Jenny Myers.
