The Section of Emergency Medicine within the Manchester Medical Society was formed at the Society Annual General Meeting on the 23rd October 2013 when it was agreed that this new Section of the Society could be established.
To launch the section Dr Clifford Mann, President of the College of the Royal Emergency Medicine was invited to give the inaugural lecture on Tuesday 25th February 2014 at 6.30 pm. His talk was well received and many questions were asked from the audience.
The venues for the meetings has been the Stopford Building at the University of Manchester and meetings 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.
•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).
As far as possible the Section Council attempts to arrange stimulating and interesting meetings covering all aspects of emergency 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 email@example.com
