Junior Doctors Forum
The Junior Doctors Forum (JDF) is a vital component of hospital life here at GOSH. Monthly meetings are held where latest news/issues/developments, as well as upcoming social events are discussed and it is a chance for you to represent your specialty or training grade.

Monthly meeting dates and times are agreed by consensus. JDF meetings are normally held on the second Thursday of the month from 12:30 till 14:00 in the Doctors Mess Seminar Room.
