Education on the Stand 2019

Find out what CPD opportunities are available at UKIO and make the most of your time

The event will take place from the 10-12 June 2019 at the Arena and Conference Centre (ACC) in Liverpool.

You can book your place now to attend one of the short ‘bite-size’ lectures, demonstrations or presentations from companies in the exhibition area.

The sessions offer education and training linked to clinical practice or techniques.

As some of the sessions are CPD Now endorsed, you have the opportunity to pick up valuable new skills, learn fresh procedures and enhance your knowledge and understanding.

A list of the Education on the Stand sessions are outlined below, along with information on how you can book your place and avoid disappointment.

This information will be updated with courses up until the conference begins, so check back regularly to ensure you don’t miss out on any later additions.

If you haven’t done so already, you can still book your place for UKIO by following this link, including registration for free exhibition access as a day delegate.

UKIO is the permanent amalgamation of the UKRC and the former UKRO conferences – making it the largest multidisciplinary imaging and oncology conference in the UK.

Make sure to visit the CoR stand - Stand A17 - to chat with the officers, and have your picture taken for Synergy News.
