Session 3: Structured networking

15.30 -17.30

WES board members and senior WES ambassadors in conjunction with junior WES ambassadors will host discussions at tables with topics that are of interest to trainees.

The idea is to generate open-ended discussion between small groups of trainees and a senior figure.

Attendees will select four tables and be prompted to switch to the next table after 30 minutes.

Table topics:

  • Your first WCE/why you should become a member of WES
  • The WES mentorship programme
  • The WES surgical masterclasses
  • The WINNERS project
  • CV clinic
  • Social media: profile, improving your presence and code of practice
  • Work life balance
  • Getting your first grant / independent position
  • Combining research with clinical work
  • Getting your paper published
