BRISTOL OBSTETRICS & GYNAECOLOGICAL SOCIETY (BOGS)

Spanning from the time before conception to our last breath, obstetrics and gynaecology is a speciality deserving of its own platform within the university. Whether your interest lies in medicine or surgery, the intimacy of the one-to-one consultation, or the adrenaline-rush of the emergency room…this speciality has something for you. As a future doctor, it is important that you are aware of the issues surrounding female and maternal health, both within the UK and worldwide. It

is our aim to further your interest in the fi eld by providing you with a fantastic array of events throughout the year. These will include seminars featuring successful and experienced O&G doctors, documentary film screenings, career evenings, powerful drama productions (in collaboration with Medics Drama), revision sessions, and evening talks exploring global O&G topics.

Cardio Soc

We aim to help students in understand what is involved in the specialty of Cardiology and to stimulate
interest in pursuing this specialty as a career. Cardiology remains one of the largest specialties in
hospital medicine and one of the most competitive ST3 jobs to apply for. As such, we believe it is important that Bristol student’s have Cardiology represented within the many academic societies off red by Galenicals. In Bristol we are fortunate enough to study near ones of the country’s fi nest Cardiology units, the Bristol Heart Institute. Therefore, Bristol students could easily benefit from teaching and advice from the Cardiologists who work there. We are responsible for
running events pertinent to the field of Cardiology and running talks, teaching, events, fundraising and more.

Haem Soc

 

We hope to open your eyes to the opportunities that exploring a career in Haematology offers, from playing detective in the lab to being with a palliative cancer patient, or advising on blood products to give in a hemorrhaging patient. Despite

being known as a rather specialised speciality, much of Haematology is very relevant to whatever speciality you choose. We also hope that our events will also encourage thought about if Haematology could be right for you.

PALLIATIVE MEDICINE SOCIETY (PALLMEDSOC)

We are a new society and want to increase your awareness of palliative medicine. It impacts on all specialties so it will affect you at some point. We want to open the discussion, debunk the myths and talk about that elephant in the room… Our patients die sometimes. Do you know what happens to patients when they’ve died on a ward? Has a patient told you they have a terminal illness and you haven’t known what to say? What does the media say about death? These are just some questions we will discuss. We have a big event planned but for now, let’s just chat. After all, if we can’t talk about it, how can we expect our patients to be able to? Considering palliative medicine as a career? We would love to help you with that so come along for a chat!

PLASTIC, AESTHETIC AND RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY

Ever thought Plastics was just about those glamorous aesthetics? Think again! Plastic surgery is awarded very little attention in the Bristol Medical School undergraduate syllabus. Depending on which academy you are placed, you will receive more or less exposure to the speciality, with most receiving none. Thus, the purpose of the newly established UoB Plastics Soc is to ensure equal and fair exposure to Plastic Surgery to all students across all academies to raise awareness of Plastic Surgery as an extremely fascinating, varied, and rewarding career choice. Throughout the year, we’ll hold a local surgical conference, talks and lectures on plastic surgery (including career advice), as well as some surgical workshops!

New committee members are still being recruited: if you’re interested in Plastic Surgery or surgery in general and want to get involved, we’d love to hear from you!
