Trainees and Students of Experimental Medicine can access unique training opportunities through a variety of resources and applications.
Delivered by University and Industry partners, delegates will participate in discussions, interactive sessions and small group work to learn about drug development activities, particularly pre-clinical phase 3 and licensing. Delegates can provide feedback and attain a certificate.
Register as a member and enroll for events here.
Royal College of Physicians – All training events will apply for RCP Continuing Professional Development accreditation.
Learning Objectives – Learning Objectives are set for each training event for delegates to add to portfolios and Personal Development Plans.
Resources – Learning resources, handouts and course materials may be provided as required.

Researcher Development Programme (RDP) provides a skills analysis survey tool and a suite of training courses, workshops and events to support research students from all disciplines across the University of Cambridge. Upon completing a skills analysis survey students can investigate a full programme of courses for research students.
CORE SKILLS TRAINING PROGRAMME
CSTP is designed to provide Year 1 students with some foundation skills that will make them a better researcher and aid in the completion of key milestones in their degree and help them make the most of other training opportunities in the years to come. Newly arrived students are automatically enrolled and invited to log into a Moodle application to access resources.
PhD Student Life Cycle – contains information on events which will or may occur during the course of PhD study, i.e. probation report, log book, thesis viva, etc. The log book is a vital tool to record all learning and training activities undertaken during the course of the degree and completion is a requirement for all EM students.
Graduate Student & Postdoc Forum was developed in 2011 to provide postgraduate students and early career researchers in Life Sciences with a platform for the communication of ideas and mutual concerns, and for the coordination of academic activities across all Departments, Institutes and Partner Institutions of the Graduate School of Life Sciences (GSLS).
The Grand Round – There are infinite numbers of clinical and academic seminars, journal clubs and discussion groups in and around the Biomedical campus and students are encouraged to attend as many as they can. Hosted by the Department of Medicine at the School of Clinical Medicine, every Wednesday at 1-2pm, The Grand Round consists of presenting the medical problems and treatment of a particular patient to an audience of doctors, residents, medical students and clinical and non-clinical biomedical researchers.
The Clinical School Mentoring programme is currently open to mid-career researchers and Clinical Lecturers. The AMS Mentoring scheme provides postdoctoral biomedical researchers with career development support by pairing them with an Academy Fellow or senior academic.
EM trainees and students will need to keep their Good Clinical Practice training up-to-date. Students must refer to their Trust and clinical supervisor to find the appropriate training available. The CUHT GCP information is here .
