I have just taken over as President of the Plastic Surgery Section at the Royal Society of Medicine in London for the 2016 – 2017 Academic Year. I have been a member of council for the section since 2012 and it is with great pleasure that I start this year as president. The Royal Society of Medicine is one of the largest independent providers of medical education in the UK. I have always enjoyed attending clinical meetings there and am very excited about the plastic surgery programme that I have put together for the year. These meetings are open to both members and non-members of the RSM. We have some great speakers lined up, who are experts in their areas of reconstructive and aesthetic plastic surgery.
The first meeting on 11th October is a day meeting on Advances in Lower Limb Reconstruction covering trauma, infection and sarcoma problems affecting the lower limb. This is followed by a series of evening meetings; An Algorithmic Approach to the Aesthetic Breast in November, Surgical Advances in the Management of Lymphoedema in December and Personal Experience and Recent Advances in Head and Neck Reconstruction in February. If possible, we may add two more evening events in March and April!
We are also holding a one day meeting for undergraduates interested in plastic surgery as a career on 26th November (UPRAS) and will finish the year with a combined RSM/BAPRAS two day Masterclass in Rhinoplasty from 8th to 9th May 2017. It will be a busy year ahead but I look forward to some fantastic meetings!
