Past Event: Paediatric Tutorials
Led by our very own Stage 3's

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. Particularly useful revision for stage 2s and any keen stage 1s! If it's a while since you've had much interaction with little ones, or you're still unsure what you're expected to do when faced with a toddler, some blocks and some crayons then these are not to be missed!

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 name just of few. So many of these and other conditions are due to faulty embryological development and I find this as good a reason as any to study embryology carefully!'

Date: Tuesday 28th October
Time: 6.30pm Start
Venue: McGrath Centre, St Catharine's College

What to do with the baby, who is not breathing

Brain injury in the newborn is a major cause of death and lifelong neurodisability placing an enormous burden on patients, their families and wider society. Dr. Austin is a Consultant Neonatologist at Addenbrookes, whose research has focused on the concept of inducing hypothermia onto hypoxic neonates to preserve cognitive function, which may otherwise be drastically reduced in ischaemic brain injury.
