Infectious Diseases Society

Infectious Diseases Society

Cardiff University Infectious Diseases Society (CUIDS) is a new society set up for people interested in infectious diseases, those who want to find out more or those completely baffled by it and in need of extra teaching!

Infectious diseases, immunology and tropical medicine only make up a small proportion of the medical curriculum, yet they are vital and extremely interesting. A large proportion of patients attending GP surgeries or admitted to hospital are diagnosed with infections. Therefore, it is important to recognise infection and the pathology underpinning it to successfully manage patients in all areas of medicine. It is also important to understand the body’s response to infection and be aware of tropical disease that can arise in patients who have travelled and are not commonly seen in the UK. 

Our society aims to provide:

  • Teaching Sessions
  • Progress Test Revision Sessions
  • ISCE Revision Sessions
  • A careers roadshow for Infectious Diseases specialities (Infectious Diseases, Medical Microbiology, Medical Virology and Tropical Medicine)
  • Opportunities to build contacts and strengthen your CV’s
  • Opportunities to attend conferences
  • Potential SSC’s, research projects, audits and more!

All years and courses are welcome!

We hope you enjoy our events and being a part of this brand-new society.
