Public Engagement

The RSM’s Public Engagement programme provides a forum for informed discussion among the public through a programme that includes free lectures and topical debates.

The events cover many subjects, ranging from topical medical news, and art and medicine, to the advancement of medical specialties, new innovations and careers in medicine. They are particularly relevant to members of the public who have an interest in medicine and healthcare topics or are involved with patient groups.
