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 with the help of the Birmingham based Secretary. A meeting each year will host a poster exhibition for the trainees, with an award being presented for best poster.

The MOS meetings are a full day event, 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 meetings culminate with an evening dinner.


The AGM is a grand event and includes a Free Paper Presentation by the trainees, the winner 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.
