The 29th SICS Annual Scientific Meeting, January 2020

The 29th Scottish Intensive Care Society ASM took place on the 23rd and 24th of January at the Fairmont Hotel in St Andrews. It was a fantastic few days with great talks from our international faculty (including Kathryn Maitland, Niall Fergusson, Kevin Fong, Chris Turner, Alison Jones, Matthieu Komorowski, Paul Frost and many more) covering a broad range of critical care topics. The programme below has more info. The meet the professor sessions and parallel streams were very popular and the evening Burns dinner and Ceilidh kept everyone chatting and partying in to the late hours. Much fun was had!
