Encouraging dialogue about medical science

To fulfil its mission the Academy must maintain effective dialogue with a range of stakeholders, particularly patients and the public.

We aim to ensure that our policy advice is shaped by the views of wider society, and we provide public platforms for our Fellows to share their knowledge and expertise with non-scientific audiences.

Recent public dialogue activities have included:

We reach broader audiences through our public events and social media activity - you can connect with us through our Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and other social media accounts.

We also encourage researchers at all stages of their careers to talk about their work. See some of our recent "Top ten tips" articles:

The Academy runs a diverse range of events for both academic and non-academic audiences.

The Academy is a highly valued source of comment on medical science in the media. We work with journalists and the Science Media Centre to enable our Fellows to comment on medical science stories in broadcast and print media.

A full archive of press releases issued by the Academy is available in our News section.

We have also been working with our Fellows to increase gender diversity in the media, including providing specialist training to some of the women in our Fellowship.
