March 25th, 2022 – The Hatter Cardiovascular Institute, UCL – SpR Case Study Grand Rounds

The Hatter Cardiovascular Institute, UCL has an ongoing interest in providing educational training to the SpR community. With a past focus on SGLT2i/GLP1a, we are now launching a new iteration of wider reaching educational training in the format of MDT-style Case Report Grand Rounds.

These meetings will occur initially twice in the coming year, continuing to target SpR’s in the fields of Cardiovascular, Renal, and Endocrine medicine, also now extending this to include SpR’s in Primary Care who have an interest in these 3 areas. In this new approach, SpR’s from across the UK will be encouraged to submit case studies which they feel are interesting, challenging, and relevant to the 3 specialties which will then be assessed by a joint panel of Consultants and SpR’s who will select those for presentation at the meeting. The goal is to stimulate discussion and problem-solving within multi-disciplinary working.

A hybrid of face-to-face and online attendance possible, participants can actively engage in the discussion and debate around the case studies. These meetings by nature will create a cohort of better educated SpR’s, and eventually Consultants, who will be able to holistically understand and address their patients’ needs.

The first meeting of 2022 will be held on Friday the 17th June from 11:00–14:00 at The Hatter Cardiovascular Institute, UCL with a virtual option also available. In addition to registering for the meeting, attendees are invited to submit a Case Report relating to their interests and in which they have found themselves slightly out of their comfort zone. We intend to select 5-6 of the most interesting case reports for discussion on the day. Please note submitting a case report is not mandatory but encouraged.
