The 8th National Undergraduate Anaesthetics and Critical Care Conference is aimed at undergraduate medical students with an interest in the specialties of Anaesthetics and Critical Care. It is an exciting and informative online event which aims to allow students to gain insight into this field of medicine through specialists speaking on a range of topics including: Obstetric Anaesthesia, Neuroanaesthesia, the Impact of COVID-19 and Careers in Anaesthetics.
The society seeks to encourage undergraduate research by providing opportunities for online poster presentations, with prizes awarded to the best overall projects. In addition to this, all delegates will receive a conference goodie bag ahead of the event, issued by the society.
As the only undergraduate Anaesthetics and Critical Care conference in Scotland, the society has been joined by medical students from Oxford, Manchester, Nottingham and Leicester in previous events. This year it is hoped that this will be extended by attracting students from across the UK who may not have been able to attend in previous years, particularly as this year’s event will take the form of an online format..
In the evening, the society will hold a virtual social via Zoom with a host of entertainment.
