The Richard Doll Society Conference 2019 will feature a range of world leading speakers from the University of Oxford and beyond, along with an ethics panel discussion.
Several of the speakers were directly involved in the 100,000 Genomes Project, making for a stimulating day discussing the future of medicine.

Attendees are welcome from across both the University and the hospitals. Tickets are free with a £15 deposit (refundable upon attendance). A free lunch will be provided.

The Richard Doll Society is a thriving medical society at Green Templeton, which is open to all members of the college, past and present. It usually organises several dinners, speaker meetings and other events each year, welcoming back the ‘lost tribe’ of junior doctors, too.
