Dr Don Bradley, the conference organiser commented:
‘This conference is a milestone for Manchester Medical School. We are fortunate that our two national speakers also work at the University of Manchester and they both have extensive experience of global health issues across the world. They will explore the implications of their work for undergraduate medical students. There will also be lots of opportunity to discuss medical education issues in the workshops. It should be a great day so I would encourage early enrolment. Don’t miss out on this rich programme in medical education.’
