BAPAM Training Day, 21 May 2016
Sat 21 May 2016, 09:30 – 16:30 BST
Our Performing Arts Medicine Training Days are ideal for healthcare professionals and others engaged in performing arts welfare who want to develop their skills in this fascinating specialism.
We present perspectives from people working in the performing arts as well as the expertise of experienced medical practitioners. This is a great opportunity to learn from peers, make connections and share unique insights.
The main theme of the forthcoming BAPAM Training Day is Guitar Playing.
Unfortunately, due to some speakers having to withdraw at short notice, this event will now be offered in the morning only. Lunch will be included in the ticket price.
