New Student Induction Day - May 2019

The new students induction day is a great opportunity for our new student members to learn more about CIPA, the Informals, PEB, IPReg, IP Inclusive etc as well as see presentations on key skills and tips for trainees.

It is also an excellent opportunity for student members to meet and share experiences, particularly for those based outside London, as the day of talks is capped off with a networking drinks reception.
