On Monday 1st August 2022, 2:00pm - 5:00pm GMT, The JRCPTB is holding a launch event for the new internal medicine and group 1 specialty curricula will be streamed live here.

This new model of postgraduate physician training will result in all trainees in group 1 specialties dual training in internal medicine. This will produce doctors who have both specialist and generalist skills, critical to meeting the evolving and challenging needs of patients and the NHS.
