Registration is now open for the headache conference in Cardiff on Friday 18th October. Mohamed Hassan is the organiser and he’s certainly put together a comprehensive programme! Further details are below.
Mohamed Hassan (an acute physician from Prince Charles, Merthyr) is organising a conference on headaches in Cardiff on Friday 18th October. Headaches are his special interest and regardless of whether they might interest you personally or not, they’re certainly a common and important problem that we see a lot of in acute medicine!
We’ll provide an update when we get further details of the day.
Our next Welsh takeAIM event has just been announced! We’ll be holding it on Wednesday 3rd April at 1800 in the Cochrane Building at the University Hospital of Wales. It’s open to anybody who might be interested in a career in acute medicine – medical students, Foundation / CMT / ACCS trainees, and other healthcare professions.
The programme has been designed by Jan Awad, one of our current Welsh acute medicine trainees. It will include a talk from him about what a career in acute medicine is like, followed by some clinical scenario workshops and finishing with some examples of how we use medical imaging in the acute medical unit. After all of that has worked up your appetite we’ll even provide free pizza to finish the evening off 🍕! If there’s anything else you want to know about AIM there will be plenty of us around during the whole event to discuss things further.
takeAIM Cardiff is completely free to attend – you simply need to register over at the takeAIM website. See you there!
If you’re interested in some slightly different CPD to usual you might want to consider the inherited metabolic disease study day in Cardiff next March. The morning programme is paediatric but the afternoon looks like it will have relevance to acute medicine. See this PDF for further details.
We spent a busy evening at UHW on Thursday 22nd November promoting the benefits of a career in acute medicine. It was great to see so much interest (and very good to see the pizza and doughnuts at the end!). We were particularly pleased to have all four of the ACCS specialties so well represented in the same area and hope we’ve persuaded a few people to consider joining us!
If you missed us there but do want to find out more about our specialty, you can always contact us via this website, email, or social media.
We’ll be representing acute medicine at the Cardiff University Medical Society Careers Fair on Thursday 22nd November from 1830-2030 in the Michael Griffiths Education Centre at UHW.
Pop in to speak to us about what a career in acute medicine is like (hint: we’re pretty keen on it!) We’ll have free WAPS and takeAIM merchandise and we’re told that there will also be pizza! 🍕
