Association of North of England Physicians

The Association of North of England was developed in 1950 by Hewan Dewar and has been proud to maintain its tradition of providing a forum for physicians to meet and discuss clinical medicine for over 60 years.

Our aims are to encourage physicians at all levels of their development to share their knowledge and experience and to explore the full remit of general medicine independent of whatever speciality they are affiliated to. In recent years the aim has specifically been to attract doctors in training and its membership currently includes a number of medical students. The hope is that by involving doctors and trainees at an early stage of their career the Association can help to expose them to a wide range of potential career opportunities as well as further their continuing professional development. Opportunities for presentation and publication further this aim and the opening of the Association's website imminently should disseminate these aims widely across the region.
