IAT events

The QMUL IAT team arrange serveral events throughout the year. 

QMUL Supervisor Meet & Greet 

Earlier this year, Will Alazawi and Marta Korbonits took over as co-leads of the programme at QMUL. We would very much like to meet all current and potential supervisors of IAT trainees within the medical school. For that reason, we've set up a couple of evening sessions, giving academic specialty leads and supervisors the opportunity to meet the new co-leads and ask any questions about the IAT programme. Please join us for an informal session at either the Charterhouse Square campus or at Whitechapel. For more information and venue details contact the IAT Programme Administrator, Nancy Schumann, on 

Charterhouse Square- 13 June 2019
Venue: BCI Boardroom, Old Anatomy Building

Whitechapel - 27 June 2019
Venue: Small Cloud, Blizard Building

Times: 5.30pm to 7.30pm (both dates)

2019 NIHR ACFs & CLs Research Day 

45 ACFs, CLs, and other junior and senior academics joined us for an exciting programme with a great mix of fellows’ talks, senior academic talks, mentoring events, panel discussions, during our inaugural Research Day on 27 September 2018. All current Academic Clinical Fellows, Clinical Lecturers, supervisors and academic leads were invited to attend and participate. The event was a great success and we look forward to the 2019 Research Day already. 

2019 Research Day - 07 October 2019

Enrichment Lectures

The QMUL IAT team run a number of lectures for QMUL MBBS students throughout the academic year to make students aware of the Integrated Academic Training option that works alongside their clinical training. The one hour lecture includes information on the IAT programme in general, a former ACF's experience, and plenty of time to ask questions. Dates will be publicised throughout the year. 

Next enrichment lectures:

  • 27 August 2019; 4pm to 5pm, Perrin Lecture Theatre, Blizard Building, Whitechapel  


ACF Induction

ACF posts tend to start around August / September each year. We hold an induction event towards the end of August each year for new starters. This is an evening event, providing information on ACF posts in general and some QMUL specifics and a good opportunity to meet fellow-ACFs. CL new starters are always invited to join the social part of the event. 

2019 ACF Induction - 05 September 2019


ACF Networking Evening 

ACFs value communication with their peers. For this reason, the QMUL IAT have set up an annual networking event. This is an evening event, taking place around May each year, offering an opportunity to meet fellow ACFs and share experiences. In addition to all current QMUL ACFs and the QMUL IAT team we also invite former ACFs and academic supervisors to give everybody the opportunity to ask questions.

Thanks to all who attended the 2019 event. We hope you enjoyed the session and found it useful.

Details for the 2020 event will be confirmed shortly.
