Following the success of previous years, the conference this year’s event will be divided into two parts.
The morning session will involve four speakers who will discuss different aspects of emergency medicine including a paediatric talk and the Scottish Ambulance Service.
The afternoon session will involve three different workshops including carrying out A-E assessment, airway management, pelvic binding and management of trauma
The aim of the event is to provide undergraduate students with an awareness of the various aspects of emergency medicine (SAS, pre-hospital, paediatrics etc) as well as some of the practical skills involved which delegates may not would otherwise not have the opportunity to experience prior to graduation.
The conference will be hugely beneficial for those considering the speciality as well as giving those unsure a taster of this speciality. Delegates will be able to talk to specialist in this field and gain an insight into what is involved and how to apply for a training programme. Additionally there will be advice on how to build an effective CV for this particular speciality.
Previously students have also been able to arrange opportunities for SCCs, electives and research.
