As part of our commitment to putting diversity at the heart of our strategy, we are delighted to host our first LGBTQ+ conference. As a College, we are proud to support LGBTQ+ surgeons to be themselves and to help them thrive as professionals. This event will form a key part of our action plan in response to the Kennedy Report and to ensure surgery can be a more welcoming and inclusive career.
The Royal College of Surgeons of England has awarded up to 5 CPD points.
This full-day event, followed by a drinks reception at The View, is aimed at all LGBTQ+ surgeons and members of the extended surgical care team, as well as any member of the extended surgical team who is interested in championing diversity in surgery. Expect an exciting day of inspirational talks, networking with like-minded colleagues at the home of surgery, and helping RCS England to shape the discussion on diversity in surgery.
And for those who are not able to join us in person at the College, there is the option to join us online.
