Aspiring Medics Evening Lecture Series – Sir Roger Boyle, CBE
We warmly invite students, together with parents, colleagues and friends in medical professions to our second Aspiring Medics Programme lecture on Tuesday 14 March at 7pm in the Piran Theatre.
Our evening will begin with a lecture from Sir Roger Boyle, on the topic “A life in the NHS – learning slowly over 42 years”.
Sir Roger Boyle qualified in medicine in London in 1972 before training in cardiology in London, Manchester and Leeds. After 20 years as a cardiologist in York, he was appointed as National Director for Heart Disease at the Department of Health in March 2000 and later for Stroke leading the development and implementation of national policies across England for eleven years. Following retirement, he has been active as a non-executive director within the NHS and in local community projects. He has also undertaken advisory work in China, Mauritius, Cyprus, Australia, Spain and Portugal. He was appointed CBE in 2004 and knighted for services to medicine in 2011.
Our Aspiring Medics Programme aims to support those students with career aspirations in the fields of medicine, dentistry and veterinary science. Through a range of lectures, seminars, work experience placements, workplace visits and workshops by professionals in the field, we aim to best prepare our students to pursue their career aspirations and gain places on their chosen university courses.
We do hope that you will be able to attend the evening, spaces are limited so please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place.
