Third National Students AMR Conference

We are excited to announce the third multidisciplinary National Students’ Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Conference taking place on 16th November as part of World Antibiotic Awareness Week 2019, hosted by Public Health England in collaboration with Aston University.

Following the successful delivery of the first two multidisciplinary student conferences in 2017 and 2018, the national student conference on AMR returns for the third year – providing a rare and exciting opportunity for students and young professionals in all areas of healthcare to learn and participate in discussion about this serious global threat.

The conference aims to promote collaboration amongst all health-related fields through a One Health approach. Attendants can look forward to an engaging and interactive day. This event has been designed by students and for students, with talks and workshops delivered by key individuals in this field, in a very dynamic style.
This conference will enable you as healthcare professionals of today and tomorrow, to be equipped with an array of knowledge, interpersonal skills, and an insight into the front line in the battle against AMR.

Previous conferences registered a large turnout of students from universities across the UK. It also offered an exciting opportunity for students to engage and interact with experts on AMR in a One-Health approach.

The 2019 conference has even more to offer! There will be opportunities for students across disciplines to submit abstracts for flash presentations and to submit interest for poster presentations. Submissions are welcome from students at any level of study.

All delegates will receive a certificate of attendance at the end of the conference.
Students and newly qualified health-professionals studying Nursing – Medicine – Pharmacy – Dentistry – Veterinary Medicine (and relevant related courses e.g. Diploma in Pharmacy Services Skills, Dental Technology qualifications etc) are invited.
