Fellows in Focus

We introduced 'Fellows in Focus' talks at Fellowship Day in 2017, to help showcase the breadth and depth of knowledge and expertise within the RCVS Fellowship.

Each Fellow is invited to talk about a subject close to their heart in just ten minutes, from the floor of the world-famous Faraday Lecture Theatre (home of the 'Christmas Lecture') at The Royal Institution in London.

You can watch videos and reports of all the Fellows in Focus talks so far using the links below.
