Welcome to Plymouth University Paediatrics Society!


As PUPS, we want to foster a space for medical learning and understanding the holistic care of the child across multiple disciplines. We put on lectures, workshops, a regional conference, and fundraising events generally to raise child health awareness and we’ll all learn something new along the way. We have also began offering volunteering opportunities and The Beckly centre and placements at Derriford Hospital Paediatric department.

If you would like to be kept updated on our events throughout the upcoming year, follow us on Instagram (@plymouth_pups) and join our facebook page (PUPS PU Paediatrics Society).
