Education


About

GroupA key part of BIRDs objectives is promoting recognition of the impact of bone and joint diseases through educational courses for health professionals, patients and the general public.  We are committed to encouraging the wider public’s awareness of rheumatic diseases and to helping patients, their family and friends better understand their condition.

BIRD organises a growing and wide ranging educational programme for the continued education and training of healthcare professionals. In doing this we work closely with a range of health and education providers, including the Royal United Hospital Bath, especially the RNHRD, the University of Bath and the Bath GP Education & Research Trust.
