AoP Webinar series: Emerging issues in medicine “Can evidence-based medicine survive in a pandemic?”

The Covid-19 pandemic emerged and consumed over half a million lives within 6 months. There has been an unprecedented response from the medical research community but dissemination of data has often occurred via media announcements and pre-prints without the usual checks of the peer review process. Has this served us well under the circumstances? Or should we do things differently in future?

Webinar: Successful Remote Interviewing – Watch online

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has a significant impact on our meeting culture. This also applies to interview situations, including those for PhD studentships, research fellowships and NHS and academic appointments. Early career researchers are particularly affected by this and face the unusual situation of online interviews and remote panel meetings.

The Association of Physicians delivered a webinar on Successful Remote Interviewing on 30th June 2020. This interactive event focused on three key points of successful interviewing: beginning strongly; excelling throughout; and finishing well. The webinar addressed techniques that will also help in conventional interviews and highlighted the specific challenges and opportunities of remote interviews.
