Live streaming

Welcome to the live streaming page for the Royal College of Physicians (RCP). Please check back regularly for updates on forthcoming live streamed events.

We've gone digital

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the RCP has taken the advice of the government to postpone holding in-person gatherings.

We have taken this as an opportunity to re-develop our approach to conferences and events and are happy to announce that beginning with our teach-ins, we are going digital. You can now tune in to our two new series, the first focusing on COVID-19 developments and the second aimed at continuing trainee learning.

Teach-ins are easy to register for, free of charge and worth 1 CPD credit each.

In case you can’t make the live event, all teach-ins will also be posted to our new streaming service, RCP Player.

Probably the most profitable 2 hours of my month – excellent talks, up-to-date, from great lecturers – and live streaming can bring it to your front door.
