South West Plastic Surgery Conference 2018 (5 May 2018)

The Exeter Surgical Society invites you to attend their Inaugural South West Plastic Surgery Conference (SWPSC) on Saturday, 5th May 2018 at the RILD building, Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital. Medical Students are invited to submit abstracts for poster presentation at this national conference.

The SWPSC 2018 will bring insight into the exciting field of plastic surgery to medical students in the South West. This is the first event of its kind in the South West and we hope to overcome the barrier of access to undergraduate plastic surgery opportunities in the South West.

The morning lectures, delivered by expert plastic surgeons, will explore the plastic surgery specialty, its subspecialties and provide practical tips on how students can get into the most competitive surgical specialty. We will also be hosting a poster competition and practical workshops in basic plastics suturing skills and knot-tying, reconstructive flap design and tendon repair – all practical skills commonly used by plastic surgeons.

We are accepting abstract submissions of any audit, SSU/SSC, case report, elective or other research project associated with plastic surgery (including hand surgery, dermatological surgery or surgery in general). To be considered, please submit a 250-word structured abstract to, by SATURDAY 14TH APRIL, 23:59.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn and experience more about the plastic surgery specialty in the South West.
