About the course

Medicine24 is the flagship medical conference of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. The two-day conference provides up-to-date information on the optimal management of acutely ill patients within the first 24 hours of admission.

Now in its fourth year, Medicine24 2018 will cover the most common situations that present in busy receiving wards, and include updates in a range of medical specialties:

  • Cardiology
  • Gastroenterology
  • Respiratory
  • Infectious diseases
  • Neurology
  • Renal
  • Geriatric medicine

The 2018 conference will also introduce a new ‘masterclass’ session. This series of workshops offers a more interactive experience, learning directly from the experts.

This year the conference will be held in the prestigious Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, in the city centre of Glasgow. The conference will also include formal dinner, held in the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow on the evening of the first day, which attendees are invited to book for.
