Clinical Academia at Sheffield – Conferences, collaborations and celebrations

The Clinical Academic Programme at Sheffield has swept busily into Autumn with a range of events.

Despite the ice for the drinks being delivered four days early, much wine and cheese was consumed and much interest generated in clinical academic careers.

The Annua512px-bessemer_5180l Gala Dinner takes place on 4th November at Kelham Island and is a chance for all trainees to network, relax and reflect on their achievements at combining research with successful clinical careers. Speakers are Prof Andrew Fisher from Newcastle and Prof David Dockrell, recently moved to Edinburgh. Music will be provided by Haematology academic lead Dr Andy Chantry’s band The Zeroes, who with great versatility promise mellow jazz with punk rock to follow.
