Oxford Talks in Medical Sciences Division
The MSD Events Digest aims to help reduce the number of emails relating to events (e.g. talks, workshops, symposia) being sent across the Division; and to ensure researchers receive information about talks they are interested in. The Division discourages the use of cascading emails to promote events and all departments and the Divisional Office now use this centralised process to promote events.
Every Thursday afternoon the Division send out the digest, listing all the divisional events coming up in the following week. All undergraduate and graduate students in the Division are automatically subscribed, and staff can opt-in (3500+ subscribers, Jan 2020). The digest is automatically updated from the central events calendar Oxford Talks, which also feeds into the divisional website Event page.
