Dundee Emergency and Critical Care Society
Dundee Emergency and Critical Care Society was created to provide its members with focused teaching and information about the specialties included in emergency and critical care medicine.
While we can't promise you the adrenaline rush of 20 cardiac arrests per episode of ER or chests being opened up on a daily occurrence, we can offer you the opportunities to get a better understanding and learn some skills in the fields of anaesthetics, emergency medicine, intensive care medicine, military medicine and expedition medicine.
DECCS is still a relatively new society and following a successful year in 2010/2011, we're expecting to bring you another busy calendar of events in 2011/2012. The committee is bright-eyed, bushy tailed and ready to pester whoever we need to so our members are given some first rate teaching.
We're committed to providing high quality education in a fun and friendly environment. So if you are interested, join the society and we will strive to get you the experience and knowledge that you crave in these exciting specialties.
SSOACC: Southampton Society of Anaesthesia and Critical Care.
We are a group of Southampton Medical Students who've come together to raise awareness of critical care and acute care specialties. Our main role is to organise events to give students an insight into the career opportunities available.
We organise a combination of events. The main bulk of our events are simulated patient scenario events. We use our close links with the clinical skills department, other Southampton medical societies and the anaesthetic department to organise themed sim man sessions. These prove to be extremely popular with all years. In these sessions students get to grips with the basics of acute medicine in action, and the dedicated supervisions infuse the students with their knowledge and passion for their given specialty.
We also organise lecture sessions, these are often career based talks about what options are available to medical students in the acute care. In this increasingly competitive day and age we try to provide advice on how to go about perusing various careers in acute medicine.
