Our 2022 annual Medical Trainee Conference, organised by the Trainees & Members' Committee of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, aims to provide an interactive diverse programme, covering important topics relevant to the on-call medic. It will be delivered entirely online. Our programme aims to cover challenging topics as well as highlighting new developments in medicine. We will start the day with a morning covering acute presentations including endocrine emergencies, acute flares of inflammatory bowel disease and the role of mechanical thrombectomy for acute stroke. In the afternoon, we discuss specialty conundrums that present to the medical receiving unit including assessment and treatment of acute kidney injury and recognition of rashes and dermatological emergencies at the front door.
