The Turner-Warwick lecturer scheme provides a sense of pride, builds confidence and gives encouragement to trainees across the UK. The scheme not only underlines the value trainees bring to healthcare, but also fosters skills like public speaking and how to package information for diverse medical audiences.
Now that the 2021 scheme has come to a close, it’s time to announce the winners! We couldn’t be more thrilled to shine a spotlight on each of these trainees who’ve worked incredibly hard and through the difficult circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our many congratulations go to each and every one!
