 I would like you to arrive at the sessions for 9 for informal discussion time and the teaching will start at 9.30 and will usually finish about 12.30. Teaching is mandatory and all effort should be made to attend. FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS YEAR ALL CLINICAL SUBJECTS WILL BE RUN DURING THE YEAR.  Everyone will need to let Samantha know in the post grad office if they cannot attend teaching before the session at and she will follow up anyone who has not given their appologies but does not come to teaching. Also this year note will be taken of those who arrive late or leave early. Looking forward to seeing you all!
