ABOUT THE EVENT

Warwick Medical School is excited to host GERMCON 2020, the 3rd annual INSPIRE Graduate Entry Research in Medicine Conference!

This year’s national conference will be held on Microsoft Teams and is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the amazing academic work undertaken by Graduate-Entry Medicine (GEM) students, to attend lectures on developing and publishing your research, and hear from keynote speakers discuss a range of topics on research in medicine.

ABOUT US

GERMCON was established in collaboration between the University of Warwick and Swansea University and funded by INSPIRE, a scheme established by the Academy of Science and the Wellcome Trust aiming to engage medical, dental, and veterinary students in research. This is especially important for GEM students, who have less opportunity and time to engage in research due to their accelerated medical degree.

 

Warwick Medical School (WMS) is excited to host this year’s virtual conference, which could not have taken place without the INSPIRE Staff Committee and the help of a volunteer Student Committee from the Warwick Academic Medicine Society (WAcMS). We would like to thank all those involved in organising GERMCON, as well as all the speakers, judges, and presenters.

 

We hope that you enjoy this year’s conference!
