Trainees with an Interest in PeriOperative Medicine (TRIPOM) are delighted to announce we will be hosting an exciting  collaborative session at the EBPOM (Evidence Based Perioperative Medicine) London Annual Congress. It is set to be an exciting afternoon packed with engaging and interactive content delivered by a panel of internationally renowned perioperative experts from a variety of backgrounds; it will not only be an entertaining afternoon for all specialities, but an opportunity to learn from leaders in the field.


Join us for the TRIPOM CPET Olympics! 

We'll teach you all about CPET whilst pitting surgeon against anaesthetist on exercise bikes! Who will be the fittest? Who will be first to reach anaerobic threshold? 

Join Clare Morkane (CPET Fellow at the Royal Free Hospital, London) in this entertaining and interactive session for curriculum-linked CPET teaching.

Her work has won numerous awards, including a BAFTA and the AAAS Kavli gold award for science journalism.

Dr David Shipway

Dr David Shipway is a consultant physician at Imperial College London. He has a specialist interest in perioperative medicine, assisting surgical teams to look after patients whose surgery is complicated by medical co-morbidities, age or overall frailty. His work involves helping patients make informed decisions about surgery by comprehensively assessing them before their operation, and then making surgery safer by working closely with the surgeon as a medical specialist embedded within their team. He leads the perioperative medicine service for older patients having surgery at St. Mary's hospital and will be joining us to discuss the perioperative considerations for the elderly undergoing surgery.
