THE EAST MIDLANDS CONFERENCE CENTRE
Medlink is delighted to offer the parents and guardians of young people attending the conference the superb opportunity to participate in a range of informative and highly praised seminars, designed to offer support and guidance to the parents of future medical students. These talks are free, with the exception of the Oxbridge session, and open to all parents and guardians attending the Medlink Exhibition.
For your convenience the talks will take place on the 20th December 2011 at the East Midlands Conference Centre (click here to view map) which is the same building in which the Medlink Exhibition will be held, so parents will be able to move between talks and the Exhibition at their leisure.
Although the final details have yet to be confirmed, for your convenience we have placed below last years programme, including rooms, times, and where appropriate, speakers.
On your arrival at the EMCC the final room listings and guides will be clearly posted and members of staff will be in attendance to assist.
The sessions outlined below are examples of a SAMPLE PROGRAMME.
