One of the meetings is usually hosted by the President and another is organised by the non-Birmingham Secretary.  The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is usually organised by the Birmingham based Secretary. Meetings each year will host a poster exhibition for the trainees, with an award being presented for best poster.

The MOS meetings are full day events, held on Fridays, with or without a theme. Several local and outside experts are invited to speak on cutting edge techniques and state of the art developments. The meetings are held in an informal manner with sufficient time for socialising. Usually the AGM meeting culminates with an evening dinner.


Photographs may be taken during meetings, both formally and informally, and the images may be used for MOS publicity and marketing purposes. Please contact a member of the MOS team if you wish to be exempt from this.


The AGM is a grand event and includes Academic and Clinical Presentations by the trainees, the winners receiving a generous award. An invited speaker delivers the prestigious Middlemore Lecture. Also there are important society announcements, such as in-coming appointments to the Executive Committee.
