The ENT Society was established in 2005. The main objective of the society is to allow Otolaryngologists from the UK and abroad who share some common values to meet on a regular basis. Besides promoting knowledge, the society also provides an opportunity for families to get together. The regular meetings have opened up a forum to discuss charity projects. These are designed to provide worldwide benefits especially in developing countries.
The meetings are held every six months or so. One in summer – which rotates – and one held in the late autumn in Manchester. In these meetings the discussion mainly revolves around clinical practice in the form of presentations and also many other issues affecting trainees. Charity projects have also become one of the main topics discussed at these meetings.
The topics of clinical interest are presented by Consultants who possess very good experience on the subject. Other grades are encouraged to present Audits and other cases which are likely to be published.
Issues affecting trainees are career prospects, CV writing, interviews and fellowship examinations. Guidance is given on all these issues and Mock Viva Practice sessions are held in various locations when suitable number of Part 3 fellowship candidates are sitting the exams.
Details of the next scheduled meeting will be posted here. You can see previous meetings here.
