Seminar: the unusual supspects: rare diseases in every medical care

20 February 2019

We believe that doctors cannot know about every rare disease but that appreciating what rare disease patients have in common will help them have better relationships with their patients. And hopefully help achieve earlier diagnosis. We find opportunities for medical students and doctors in the rare disease field, for example:

Holding an annual symposium on rare diseases at The Royal Society of Medicine

Collaborating with Findacure on the Student Voice Essay Competition

Helping them to hold big events like Birmingham Rare Diseases Society’s annual conference

Making connections abroad for placements or research opportunities
