Neurosurgery UG Synopsium

Posted on by

A neurosurgical symposium is being held on 25th February, 0930 – 1500, Southampton General Hospital and features 3 fantastic speakers and a burr-hole drilling workshop.

New Year, New You? Unproductive Christmas? Why not kick off your New Year resolutions by finding out more about a career in neurosurgery!

Neurosurgeons have the privilege of working in one of the most anatomically beautiful spaces, where the stakes are high.
In collaboration with the neurosurgical trainees and consultants at Southampton General Hospital, we bring you Southampton’s first Undergraduate Neurosurgical Symposium.

This is an exciting opportunity for around 30 students to explore a career not featured in the BM4/5/6 courses, network with trainees and leaders in their field, and partake in stimulating small group workshops and teaching. All for only half a Saturday. What’s not to love… This year we have a burr-hole drilling workshop for those technical ones amongst you.
We have 3 fantastic speakers confirmed, who will share their years of experience and outline what it takes to succeed in such a demanding, but rewarding, speciality.

Mr Ryan Waters – Consultant in Paediatric Neurosurgery and Neurotrauma.
Mr Aminul Ahmed – Academic Neurosurgical Fellow – MB PhD graduate and interests in stem cells for TBI.
Mr Sam Hall – Neurosurgical Trainee – Southampton alumini and founder of NUNC.

The day will round-off with an invaluable opportunity to network with trainees and neurosurgeons.
Watch this space for itinerary updates and information about ticket releases. This is an event not to be missed by anyone with an interest in neurosurgery, neurology or neuroscience.’

Invitation to ‘The Osler Club of London’

Posted on by

I am writing to extend an invitation to your students to the Osler Club of London, on behalf of our president, Richard Osborn.

We are a medical society and hold meetings monthly at the Royal College of Physicians in Regents Park. The format is drinks, talk and a dinner (for which there is a charge) open to members and guests, but what may be of most interest to students is that they may as non-members attend our evening events, which is a chance to mix with senior figures in the medical world. Drinks are served at 6.30pm followed by a talk from 7pm – 8pm, for which the current cost is £5, ideally book one week in advance as space is limited.

Our speaker, on 12th January, is Pankaj Chandak, winner of the RCP Norman Tanner medal, ““From Bench to Bedside – the important legacy of Lord Lister in modern day translation”, anyone interested should book by this weekend or email to enquire at later notice.

Following, on 2nd March, is Lady Rose Cholmondeley on “The Death of Chopin” .

For more information or to book a place, email the club at Further details of the club are on our website
