About this event

  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Anaesthesia

Student and trainee prize meeting, AGM and annual dinner.

The Anaesthesia Section's final meeting of the academic year will include presentations from both student and trainee essay prize winners, followed by guest speaker Mr Nick Ross.

Award-winning journalist and NHS Trust Non-Executive Director, Nick Ross will be giving an insightful lecture on how medicine can help cure crime. Hear his views on the development of evidence-based medicine, and how evidence-based criminology might turn to prevention, rather than retribution.

Here's a taster of what's to come; "if only we saw crime as a disease, we’d learn how to prevent it with hygiene, how to counter it with vaccination, and why we ought to treat it with evidence of what works, not commitment to satisfying liberal or retributive ideology." 

Annual dinner (for pre-registered delegates only)

Delegates are invited to stay after the meeting to network with colleagues and enjoy a delicious dinner at the RSM. The dinner needs to be pre-booked on this webpage before the event date to secure your place.
