Military Medicine, January 2014

Tuesday 7 January 2014, 18:00, Lecture Theatre 2, New Hunt’s House, Guy’s Campus

Three exciting talks not to be missed:

Professor Richard Sullivan (Chair of Cancer Policy & Global Health and Director of the Institute of Cancer Policy) is a researcher in global cancer health and conflict & health focusing on public health systems in high-risk, conflict areas including DR Congo, Afghanistan & Libya. He will be sharing his experiences of being a military doctor in Afghanistan and elsewhere.

Major Claudia Parnell (Nurse in The Army), who has just returned from Afghanistan, will be speaking about the role of the Nurse on operational deployment.

Our very own Andy Hall (President of KCLWMS and Combat Medic in The Army) will be talking about medicine in front of the front-line (the role of a Combat Medic and his experiences in Afghanistan), remote medical opportunities within the army, and military assistance to civilian communities.

Speakers will be answering questions about the TA and Regular armed forces, telling us what life is really like in the forces, and can offer advice on getting involved. Whether you’re a budding military doctor or if the thought simply tickles your fancy, or if you simply want to hear the stories first-hand, this is a unique opportunity to get insight into careers in the military and medicine in the wider world.
