We have pleasure in confirming details of our latest regional meeting for careers teachers and education advisers in the South West. This will take place at Queen's College, Trull Road, Taunton, Somerset, TA1 4QS on Wednesday 24 May 2017.

The meeting will commence at 11:30 followed by lunch and finish at 16:00. It will start with an open forum in which those present can share ideas and exchange examples of good practice, followed by lunch at 13:00 and the presentation will start at 14:00. If you wish to join us at lunch time or just for the presentation, please let us know.

Our keynote speaker will be Professor Steven Burr of the Peninsula Medical School and the topic: Distinguishing Features of the "new" Medical Schools.

When Peninsula first opened it bucked the trend by not requiring Chemistry at A-level, though it now conforms with the others. How popular are the "new" medical schools with applicants? Have they managed to stay distinct from the more established ones? Should students still be considering Medicine in these turbulent times for the NHS? Come and find out.
