Manchester Medical Society

Medicine

Background

The Manchester Medical Society’s Section of Medicine organises a series of clinical symposia of multidisciplinary and specialist topics throughout the year, awarding prizes for trainee research presentations in October and March. All the Section’s meetings are of a high educational standard and Continual Professional Development (CPD) approval is applied for through the Royal College of Physicians. Members of the Section are also entitled to attend meetings of all other Sections of the Society.

Venues for the meetings vary across the North West Region and afford an excellent opportunity to obtain local continuous medical education at reasonable rates.

Benefits of membership

Membership of the Society confers the following benefits:
•An opportunity to meet and network with colleagues across the North West Region and beyond.
•Discounted rates for meetings.
•Quality local and national speakers and local CME.
•(Trainees only) Eligibility to enter for the annual trainees’ prize
•Access to a secure area of the website to view presentations of missed meetings and presentations from other sections.
•Eligibility for a University of Manchester Library card (currently the Society does not have access to library literature search facilities).

Meetings

As far as possible the Section Council attempts to arrange stimulating and interesting meetings covering all aspects of medicine. Inevitably the Section Council cannot be aware of all current topics that may be of interest to members and the names of potential speakers. If any Society members have any suggestions for future meetings or the contact details of potential speakers they are encouraged to contact the Section or Society Secretariat at admin@mms.org.uk .
