Clinical Academics in Training Annual Conference (CATAC)

CATAC - the Clinical Academics in Training Annual Conference - is a unique cross specialty event designed to bring clinical academic trainees together to present their work, meet one another and network with senior researchers. What was previously the Spring Meeting, CATAC is the result of the evolution of the prestigious meeting following an independent evaluation, and will be held at the Royal College of Physicians, Edinburgh on 8 November 2018. 

“As the Academy of Medical Sciences’ Regional Champion for Scotland, I’d like to encourage Early Career Researchers to attend the Clinical Academics in Training Annual Conference to present your work. It’s a great opportunity to network with your colleagues across the UK, to meet Academy Fellows and talk about your research. I’d also like to encourage Fellows of the Academy to come, to support our junior colleagues and to learn something new! Previous Spring Meetings have had excellent feedback: this is the first time it is being held in Scotland, and I am sure there will be a good turnout.”

Professor Jane Norman FMedSci, Professor of Maternal and Fetal Health, Director of the Tommy's Centre for Maternal and Fetal Health, Vice Principal, People and Culture, University of Edinburgh.

The opportunity for networking is extraordinary! I love that the Academy Fellows who attend are the ones who are really interested in the next generation. I had some very inspiring conversations. In general it felt a step change better than last year – very, very impressed by the organisation and speakers. Spring Meeting attendee.
