ENT Surgery Soc.

Society Registrations submitted on Nov 8, 2022

Society Description

Medical students only spend one week on ENT placement although The presentations are common and affect all ages of patients. There is a side to ENT, i.e. major head and neck surgery, that not many students are able to see so never get an opportunity to fully explore the specialty over only one week placement. 

The ENT surgeons are incredibly welcoming, and I have returned multiple times to assist in theatre and we have worked together to publish research which can be very difficult to achieve as a medical student but important for a career in surgery. 

The Junior doctors in ENT are very keen to teach but have not had a society to directly organise and promote this education. There is a large generic surgical society, but this is not dedicated to individual specialties which leads to missed opportunities for teaching and operating theatre placements in ENT. The Surgeons in the ENT department are very happy to have students shadow in theatre and for the juniors to teach as much as possible, but this is not currently being utilised. 

I would like to promote not only the specialty of ENT but give medical students early opportunities to witness and assist with major surgery as well as receive valuable clinical teaching on a subject that is common and affects all age groups.

Aims & objectives: 

  • To deliver ENT focussed medical education sessions. 
  • To promote the specialty of ENT surgery with careers talks from current consultant and trainee surgeons. 
  • To organise day placements within the ENT department for medical students, particularly to see operations. 
  • To encourage research by communicating opportunities from the ent department to students and supporting applications to present or attend ENT surgical conferences.
