National Undergraduate Conference for Anaesthetics and Critical Care 2019

16th November 2019 James Watt South Building and Wolfson Medical School, University of Glasgow    FEEDBACK


The National Undergraduate Conference for Anaesthetics and Critical Care 2019 is aimed at undergraduate medical students with an interest in anaesthetics and critical care medicine.

Glasgow Anaesthetics Society aims to provide students with the opportunity to gain an insight into the fields of anaesthetics and critical care medicine by inviting specialists to speak on a range of topics. Delegates will be advised on how to build a successful CV when specialising in anaesthetics, paediatric anaesthesia, neuroanaesthesia and emergency transfer medicine.

Moreover, clinical skills stations, led by volunteer clinicians, will allow students to develop their interests in the fields of anaesthetics and critical care medicine, whilst practicing their skills using specialised equipment.

Glasgow Anaesthetics Society encourages undergraduate research by providing students with opportunities for poster presentations, awarding prizes to the best overall projects.

As the only undergraduate and critical care conference in Scotland, Glasgow Anaesthetics Society has previously been joined by students from Oxford, Manchester, Nottingham and Leicester, with hopes to build further bridges with students from across the UK.

In the evening, the society plans to hold a dinner and social at DRAM!, which will allow the delegates and the committee members the opportunity to network with one another.
