Further information about our courses

Please see our Events Newsletter here.

A key part of our clinical mission is the sharing of our knowledge to raise awareness of occupational lung disease through education and training, so that what we learn can help patients everywhere.

We are also committed to supporting learning in key statistical and epidemiological concepts and methods, to aid researchers in understanding and transmitting their findings.

We run a variety of scheduled educational events, courses and workshops to support these aims; please see further information below.

Bespoke, off site training sessions in topics related to our formal events and tailored to the audience are also available on request; please contact us to discuss your learning needs.
