We are Durham Paediatric Society! We aim to create some amazing opportunities to get everybody involved in Paediatric Medicine!
We are the newly founded Durham Paediatric Society (founded in 2013) based down at Queens Campus. We share a link with Newcastle Paediatric Society and together we try and get as many medics involved in Paediatric Medicine as we can.
The team are all very keen on Paediatrics as a future career, so we try our best to organise as many fun activities as we can relating to Paediatric Medicine. We're keen on getting involved with national conferences and workshops, organising talks from the best-in-the-field Paediatric Doctors, as well as trying to create more practical based activities such as child trauma and resus sessions.
We actively take part in fundraising, whether this be through cake baking, leg waxing or simply shaking a bucket we are as committed as we can be to the children's charities we support.
We also run Teddy Bear Hospital, an amazing experience for us to work with children in the local area. Sessions are a series of workshops where the children teach their teddies about healthy eating, healthy hearts, X-rays, injections and much more to try and reduce fear of hospitals and doctors.
We are always keen for new ideas and fresh faces, so please get involved and check out our website at http://durhampaeds.wix.com/durhampaedsoc!
