Free CPD events at BMA House or via webcast

You can register to attend free, two-hour CPD sessions as part of your BMA membership. You can attend in person at BMA House in London, or watch live via the Internet.

All bookings close the day before the event so early booking is advisable. We are unable to book you on once the booking system closes.

The following CPD sessions will take place at BMA House and also be webcast live. BMA members can attend in person or join from anywhere in the UK using a computer or a mobile device.

Please use the 'Book here' links below to register and select the correct booking option on the registration form (BMA House or via the internet).

This page will be updated with details of new CPD events and webcasts as they become available.
