Ledingham Lecture Series

Ledingham Lecture Series

We have set up an OUMEF Lecture series called the Ledingham Lecture series in honour of Professor Ledingham. The aim of the series is to inspire medical trainees to excellence in their academic, clinical and personal endeavours. This will be achieved through learning how inspirational leaders overcame challenges to achieve transformational changes within their own fields.

Our first speaker will be Professor Alistair Buchan who is the Head of our Medical Sciences Division and Dean of the Medical School. He, along with Peter Sullivan, has been instrumental in the formation of OUMEF. Professor Ledingham will also be in attendance. The venue is Corpus Christi College; time 5.45 to 7.30pm on March 17.

The format of the evening will include a “TED” – like presentation (20-30mins), then a brief interview with a member of the OUMEF group to be followed by questions from the audience. We will then proceed to dinner in College.

This will be a very high profile event. The lecture will be recorded for the OUMEF and the university websites – Funding for this comprises part of our teaching excellence award from the university.
