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 academics 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 the most recent event was held at the Royal College of Physicians, Edinburgh on 8 November 2018. 

The next Clinical Academics in Training Annual Conference will be held in Bristol on Wednesday 6 May 2020. 

Please read the abstract submission guidelines before completing this form. Abstract submission will close at 12pm on Monday 17 February 2020.

Are you a clinical academic looking for a chance to present your research, perhaps for the first time?

CATAC is a great opportunity for you to:

  • Develop your presentation skills.
  • Meet with your peers and senior academics to build networks.
  • Raise your profile within the clinical academic community.
  • Meet Academy Fellows.


Feedback from CATAC 2018:

"The keynote speakers gave honest accounts of the career ups and downs of a clinical academic, and invaluable advice on remaining true to yourself, maintaining work-life balance and how to ultimately succeed as an independent researcher. There were interesting presentations covering a diverse range of academic disciplines."

"We left the meeting with broadened horizons and renewed enthusiasm for collaborative research and future careers in clinical academia."
