If you do not provide all information requested, we may be unable to process your request and incomplete applications will be returned and a new request would be needed.
MPS criteria for speaker requests
We are not always able to provide a speaker given the number of requests we receive. Audience size, travel time and time of day are taken into account when managing these requests. In office hours are easier to accommodate.
We usually ask for a minimum audience size of 30 delegates. Talks are usually 40 to 60 minutes in duration, including time for questions and answers. Longer sessions (eg. on complaint handling) can sometimes be provided. We provide lectures on core medicolegal topics but can also provide bespoke content; we also provide half-day workshops.
We recognise that it can be difficult to achieve audiences of more than 30; you may wish to consider joining together with another group.
In accepting your invitation, please be aware that MPS does not allow its presenters to provide advance copies of their presentations, unless the host is able to agree to certain conditions designed to ensure that it is not copied or distributed beyond that required for the presentation.
