We hold a small number of international courses in Edinburgh, in addition to occasional teaching on courses held in other countries and organised by our  international  Regional Advisers or Fellows.

Edinburgh International Course in Medicine of the Older Adult

Directed by Dr Conor Maguire, this course runs annually in late spring/early summer, for physicians from around the world who specialise or have a major interest in the care of older people. Primarily for doctors at consultant or senior trainee level, the course includes update lectures by expert speakers on topics of current and practical relevance in geriatric medicine, with frequent opportunities for interactive, case-based learning. 

There is an opportunity for two delegates from any country listed as lower to lower middle income by the World Bank to attend this course supported by the Brian Chapman Scholarship.

We limit the places for this course, thus maximising opportunities for interaction. The course also features a social programme including a drinks reception and tour of the historical College buildings, a delegate dinner, and a medical history tour of Edinburgh. Delegates also have the chance to explore our beautiful city. 

Information about the event planned for 13-17 May 2024 will be available on our events pages soon.

It is designed for trainees in Clinical Oncology at the start of their preparation for the FRCR exam part 2 and trainees in Medical Oncology at the start of their preparation for MRCP(UK) Specialty Certificate Examination in Medical Oncology.
