Conference of medical academic representatives (COMAR)

COMAR is the BMA's policy forum for medical academics: doctors engaged in medical research and medical education in higher education institutions, in the NHS and in industry. We welcome all doctors engaged in this work at all stages of their careers whether or not you are a BMA member.


COMAR 2018

The most recent conference took place on Friday 20 April 2018 at BMA House in London.  The theme was 'Leadership at all levels.'

The conference included speeches and debates on key topics affecting academics, plus question and answer sessions and round-table discussions between representatives and committee members. There were plenty of opportunities to network with colleagues throughout the day.
