Calman Lecture & President's Evening

The Calman Lecture
The Annual prestigious Calman Lecture is given in honour of Sir Kenneth Calman Hon FAcadMEd, one of the founders of the Academy of Medical Educators.  As a tribute to Sir Ken's own enormous involvement, leadership and contribution to teaching, learning and the organisation of medical training, the general theme for the Calman Lectures is reflections on the education of doctors.  
We were delighted that the 2017 Calman Lecturer was Professor Jenny Higham, Chair, Medical Schools Council and Principal of St George's, University of London. Jenny's talk The pathway to “the top” is a winding and sometimes treacherous one, but rarely boring was fascinating, funny and thought provoking and everyone who attended took away some wonderful advice about how to get on in their careers as well as how to get on with their colleagues!
