IMO Public Health and Community Medicine Winter Meetings 2012
The IMO will be holding a number of winter meetings to discuss current and pending issues for Public Health and Community Medicine Doctors.
It is intended that there will be a Continuous Professional Development / Continuing Medical Education component to these meetings, details of which will follow in due course.
The schedule for these meetings is as follows:
|6th November 2012||

The Certainty of Uncertainty: Public Health and Community Medicine in Flux.

Given the widespread indications that there will be further, likely deep, reductions in the health budget for the 2013 fiscal year I would encourage as many Public Health and Community Medicine Doctors as possible to attend these meetings.
