The Division of Medicine Retreat took place on Thursday 9th May at the Marriott Hotel Canary Wharf. It was a spectacular success that was filled to capacity, proving itself to be a year-on-year success.

We are very grateful to UCL FMS for their continued support for this initiative that has brought such cohesion, collaboration and camaraderie to all with our Division.  A massive thanks to Alison Kelly without whom this special event would not have happen. Also, to Krista Rombouts, academic lead organiser, as well as Samia Jahangir, Esther Geary and of course Anita Waterman.
