University of Birmingham Medical Society

Birmingham Palliative Medicine Society

All medical students will confront death at some stage in their training. As the numbers of elderly people increasing across the UK, the complexity of managing end-of-life issues has also increased. 

We are looking to set up a society for palliative medicine within MedSoc to promote awareness and understanding of these complex end-of-life issues through speaker-led discussions, communication skills workshops, film evenings and research opportunities, as well as through building relationships with local charities, hospices and palliative care teams. 

Because the management of patients at the end-of-life is not confined to palliative care, we are hoping to involve students with a broad range of interests, from general practice to paediatrics, oncology and surgery.
