WELCOME TO THE BRITISH UNDERGRADUATE CARDIOVASCULAR ASSOCIATION!
Currently in our fourth year, we seek to promote undergraduate cardiovascular medicine in the UK and support medical students interested in pursuing a career in the field. We are an associate of the British Cardiovascular Society (BCS) and represent aspiring cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons. Our aims are to:
I. Provide regular talks by speakers on topics relating to cardiovascular medicine, including careers and sub-specialities.
II. Provide courses including revision courses and sub-speciality courses, led by students and professionals on areas of the medical curriculum relating to cardiovascular medicine.
III. Facilitate cardiovascular research training and networking amongst medical students and junior doctors across the UK.
IV. Organise the annual international student conference to showcase the best research produced by medical students & new junior doctors within the UK.
V. Provide opportunities to practice relevant clinical skills and OSCEs that form part of the medical curriculum.
VI. Promote having a cardiovascular society at each medical school.
We hope that you find our events beneficial and interesting. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
