2022 National Student Paediatric Conference
The Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) Paediatric Society is pleased to announce the 11th annual National Student Paediatric Conference on the 26th February 2022 at the University of Sussex.
This year’s theme is:
“Exploring the Wider Issues of Child Health’.
Delegates can expect a day of talks, small-group case-based discussions, hands-on workshops and Q and A panels run by leading experts in the field of Paediatrics.
The conference will provide delegates with a complimentary breakfast, lunch, tea and coffee throughout the day as well as the opportunity to enter the BSMS poster competition.
The day will finish with a black-tie ball at Jury’s Inn Waterfront Hotel where delegates will receive a three-course meal, a welcome drink and half a bottle of wine per person (or a suitable non-alcoholic alternative), as well as free entry to a night out following the ball. Guests will have the opportunity to enter a raffle to win prizes, with all proceeds of the raffle going to the Amaze Sussex, Whoopsadaisy and Make a Smile charities.
The Annual National Student Paediatric Conference is one of BSMS’s most anticipated annual events, bringing together students and healthcare professionals from across the country.

This protection fee will grant you a free refund if you cannot attend the event because you are self-isolating following a positive COVID-19 test or have been asked to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace. If due to national guidelines the event is not able to take place in person, a suitable alternative will be arranged and/or refunds will be issued.

Who Can Attend?
Although the conference is organised by students at Brighton and Sussex Medical School, the content is relevant to students in any healthcare discipline as well as education so we warmly welcome our colleagues from the Nursing, Midwifery, Paramedic Science and Education courses at the Universities of Brighton and Sussex, in addition to those from elsewhere in the world who choose to attend. If students are visiting from other universities, feel free to contact us and we can help find appropriate accommodation.
NSPC: A Lecture Series
About the 2021 Conference:
Last year due to social distancing guidelines, we hosted the conference online through a series of virtual lectures with a range of speakers as an alternative.
The Lecture Series was a great success, and we look forward to welcoming you back in person for the 2022 Conference!
About the 2020 Conference:
We are so proud to have hosted the 9th National Student Paediatric Conference (NSPC) on the 29th February 2020 at the University of Brighton.
The theme of the conference was 'Shaping the Future of Paediatrics: A day discussing Paediatric Career Pathways'.
The aim of the conference was to provide delegates with the opportunity to explore a variety of career pathways in Paediatrics, participate in smaller group seminars and network with leading Paediatric Specialists. All delegates received breakfast, lunch and refreshments throughout the day and a certificate of attendance.
As per tradition, we then celebrated the end of the conference with a Black Tie Ball at the Jury's Inn on the Brighton Seafront. The ball featured arrival drinks, a three course meal and entertainment throughout the night including a raffle to raise money for our chosen charities: Haydn's Wish, Whoopsadaisy and Rockinghorse.
