National Student Psychiatry Conference

The annual National Student Psychiatry Conference is a great opportunity to meet senior psychiatrists and students from other medical schools, as well as to learn more about different areas within psychiatry.

Whether you’re committed to a career as a psychiatrist or not, the conference is both really useful and great fun.

The NSPC is run by a different PsychSoc each year. We will be recruiting for the 2022 hosts later this year - watch this space!
