Training for trainees

As part of their on-going training, allergy trainees are required to attend BSACI’s annual programme of four allergy workshops which cover aspects of the allergy curriculum and take place around the country at a variety of allergy centres.

Who else can attend?
Any BSACI member who is an allergy, immunology or paediatric trainee. Any other trainee who is not a BSACI member is required to pay £100 to attend each workshop.

Please note that these training days are not open to any other specialities.

Allergy trainees will be notified directly by BSACI of the training days and asked to register, immunology & paediatric trainees will receive details directly from their trainee representatives. For further details and to register, please email [email protected] or call 0207 501 3910.

Immunology Teaching Sessions

The ACP/BSI immunology training days are up and running again, via webinar. BSACI members can join these training days and the most cost effective way to do this is by joining BSI so they can attend all the training sessions throughout the year for free.  Doctors in training posts can apply for the ‘early careers price’ and this should be highlighted on their application.

Please click here to access the membership page of the British Society for Immunology

All forthcoming training sessions can be viewed here.
