Legal Aspects of Surgical Practice – The Royal College Of Surgeons Of England

May 6, 2016 @ 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

£360

There has always been an association between the medical and legal professions. Changes in regulation of the medical profession, the increased trend to litigation, alterations to the coroners’ service and the closure of university departments of medical jurisprudence have all contributed to a feeling of unease in dealing with medicolegal matters. In order to meet the growing demand for surgically-focused training in how to respond to many medicolegal issues the course director, Professor Paul Marks, has designed a course to provide you with the required skills and knowledge.
