Local groups

Junior Doctors Together

Junior Doctors Together (JDT) is a Hull-based group focused on quality improvement and patient safety. JDT meets approximately once per month, usually on a Thursday evening, at the East Riding Medical Education Centre at Hull Royal Infirmary. The group offer friendly advice on quality improvement projects and act as a catalyst for further support and opportunities in leadership and management. Highly recommend this useful group for students and juniors: why not come along one evening (there’s food before the meeting). For more information, you can follow JDT on twitter at @JDrsTogether.
