Scottish Paediatric Society

Open to all doctors, medical students and professions of other healthcare disciplines who are committed to a career in paediatrics or one of its sub-specialities. Activities include paediatric research, CPD, events and networking along with opportunities for trainees to meet and present.
We welcome applications from paediatricians, medical students and professions of other healthcare disciplines working in Scotland or with an affiliation to Scotland who are considering a career in Paediatrics or demonstrated a commitment to child health in Scotland.
Our principal purpose is to promote the health of children in Scotland - through educational meetings, funds for junior staff to travel to international meetings and administering ScotPSU. We are governed by the SPS Executive Committee under the leadership of the SPS President.
Founded in 1922, SPS was the first Paediatric Society in the UK. Since the beginning, we have been about sharing and advancing knowledge in paediatrics. We provide a look back at our history.

Join our Annual General Meeting and St Andrew’s Day Paediatric Symposium this November

Our next meeting will be held online, hosted by Dr Umair Khan, on 12 November. As before, it will feature four clinical case and four QI/Audit/Research presentations, poster presentations and two guest speakers, including Dr Camilla Kingdon, RCPCH President.

We invite all SPS members to submit an abstract by 5 October. Registration will open later.
