Every year we host an ICAT Symposium at Forrest Hills, near Lancaster University.
At the Annual Symposium, we celebrate the work of our clinical academic trainees. It is an opportunity for trainees and their supervisors to meet one another, as well as their colleagues from Lancaster University and local NHS Trusts. The programme includes updates in academic clinical training and insights from expert researchers, but for many the highlight is the 'three-minute thesis' competition, where clinical academic trainees have the opportunity to present their work in a concise and entertaining style.
The abstracts from the ICAT Symposium are published every year in the spring edition of the Morecambe Bay Medical Journal.
Our video about integrated clinical academic training at Lancaster Medical School was recorded at the 2019 Symposium.
