Our November Academic Forum was on the topic of Paediatric Trauma. It was our first ever international one, and students on the Barts MBBS course in Malta streamed the talks for the first time. We had two speakers:
1. Dr. Prasanth Sritharan, a PCP alumn and ex-Academic Forums Officer soon to start CT1 in Anaesthetics. He spoke about a case he attended when he was a student on the PCP programme of a significant fall in a young child.

2. Dr. Andrew Wood, a HEMS anaethetist working with London's Air Ambulance with an interest in major trauma. He spoke about a case he attended, involving two paediatric patients
