Wessex Cardiology Trainees

EP Research at UHS (+ a few other things)

Dear All

EP Research at UHS
Dr Waqas Ullah, Consultant Electrophysiologist at University Hospital Southampton, is looking to meet with anyone who might be interested in undertaking a period of dedicated research in EP. He is leading on two projects which are about to commence, and is looking for an enthusiastic Fellow to join our excellent Research Department. The projects, which relate to complex arrhythmia mapping, are both at an advanced stage in terms of planning and preparation. This therefore represents an excellent opportunity for anyone who is interested. The work would be suitable for submission for a University MD (Res) and is high likely to generate peer review publications. Please contact Waqas directly to discuss this with him.

Trainee Rep
A quick reminder for anyone who wants to be considered for the post of Wessex Trainee Rep, the deadline for personal statements is 5pm on Wednesday 16th May. These need to come to me by e-mail.

Evening Meetings
We had an excellent meal last night at The Chesil Rectory in Winchester, which is apparently the third most romantic restaurant in the UK! Thank you to Dr Jason Glover for speaking and also to our generous sponsors.

Jonathan and I (or perhaps my replacement) will definitely be organising future evening events. To date we think that these have been a successful venture and very much hope that you all agree. We would however happily receive any feedback you might have about them. Don't forget they are arranged for your benefit.

To date we have tried to combine education with good food and the opportunity to socialise with your fellow trainees. We have also consistently tried to select a mid deanery location. Is this the right approach? Let us know. Also, if you have a great idea for a future evening event that you would like us to explore, then please get in touch. 

On the topic of evening events can I also please ask everyone to remember that if you sign up to attend an evening meeting which you are then unable to attend, it is important that you contact the event organiser so they can rearrange the catering arrangements. Simply not turning up is unprofessional and reflects poorly on us all.

Finally Rob Adam has asked us to remind you that he and Simon Claridge have both been invited to speak at an industry event which is being held locally in a couple of weeks time (24th May in Romsey). You are all invited to this and should contact Rob directly for more information.

See you all at the Basingstoke training day.
