About Pulse LIVE Virtual Festival

The must-attend, free events for all practising, GMC-registered GPs and trainees.

Put together by the team behind the award-winning Pulse Magazine and Pulse Learning, Pulse LIVE supports the education and development of grassroots GPs.

What to expect?

Pulse LIVE has toured the UK with a series of multi-stream conferences, tailored to support the clinical and professional development of grassroot GPs and GP trainees. Up to 2020, our face-to-face events have welcomed thousands of GPs across different locations of the country, with our flag-ship event in London being a sold-out event for over 3 years.
Now, Pulse is a pioneer in responding to the needs of the industry in these challenging times moving to a digital platform, providing new opportunities for GPs to network and access up-to-date education and expert knowledge on the new emerging world of general practice.
Pulse virtual festival will take place over 3 months, September to December 2020. Specifically designed for GPs and GPs only, this virtual festival will allow you to meet your personal CPD and professional needs, all from the comfort of your own home. Whether it is clinical updates, survival skills in the current NHS climate, or professional development tips that you are looking for, you are guaranteed to find the answer at the Pulse Virtual Festival.

Clinical Sessions

Focusing on the implications from the latest NICE guidance, treatment needs of patients and perennially challenging conditions, this stream will feature in-depth updates on a range of clinical areas.

Non-clinical sessions

Our non-clinical sessions will focus on your personal and professional development as a GP. With sessions on DES proposals, pensions, finance, remote consultation skills and portfolio careers, these sessions are your go-to for policy updates, careers inspiration and more.

Clinical half-days

These half-day intensive events are designed to focus on the most pressing clinical areas in general practice. With half-days on paediatrics, mental health, and dermatology, these half-days are guaranteed to get you up to date on the latest in general practice.

LIVE Sessions

Our expert panel of speakers will be running our sessions live, offering you the chance to raise your questions to them, and test your knowledge through interactive polling and quizzes.

On-demand Playlist
