Cambridge University Paediatrics Society is running revision sessions for paediatrics! The sessions will be taught by current stage 3s and plan to cover all the key topics in 3 short sessions.

Past Event: Challenging Problems in Paediatric Urology
A talk by Bob Whitaker
Bob Whitaker shares unique slides from his career in paediatric urology...
mention of a 'wonky willy' or two is probable but not guaranteed!
'Although I have been retired from paediatric urology for a fair number of
years now, many of the problems that I faced in practice are still challenging
others today. These include the need to operate on hydronephrosis found on
prenatal scanning, the severe obstruction cause by posterior urethral valves
in infant boys, renal failure secondary to infected vesicoureteric reflux, to

embryological development and I find this as good a reason as any to study
