NB Medical Education was founded over 20 years ago by doctors Simon Curtis and Phil Nichols. The original aim was to help GP trainees pass their MRCGP exam.

The first ‘Hot Topics’ course was held in London in September 1998 and from those small beginnings has grown today’s business which provides CPD training for over 20,000 Primary Care healthcare professionals per year.


Our presenting team, led by Dr Simon Curtis in Oxford, are all NHS GPs and Nurses who are recognised nationally and internationally within their area of expertise and work tirelessly to maintain a position at the forefront of modern practice.
