Relaunching the Faculty of Medicine Staff Rounds

Staff Rounds are relaunching at Hammersmith Campus from Wednesday 18 September.

What are Staff Rounds?

The aim of the Staff Round is to inspire and learn how clinical medicine can be transformed by research. It’s a way for Faculty and Trust staff to discover the extraordinary research carried out throughout the Faculty and to bring people together.

The central premise of the event will be to use a clinical case to highlight research and encourage discussion. Staff Rounds have a long history at Hammersmith Hospital, dating back to the 80s.

The weekly sessions during term-time are organised by Professor Liz Lightstone. Writing about last year’s Staff Rounds, she said: “As part of an AHSC we still value hearing about fascinating clinical problems outside our specialities, and that we are prepared to joust in a friendly manner to promote even better outcomes. But that will only happen if people make the effort to attend, if the senior members of staff come along and bring their teams with them, and if everyone contributes. I would like the Staff Round to once again become a highlight of the week.”

Who can attend?

Research staff, clinicians, nurses, allied health professionals and more are encouraged to attend and will be welcomed.
