HCSS

Our aims:

  • Promote and provide insight into careers in all branches of surgery for medical students and foundation doctors
  • Provide a forum for discussion of current topics in surgery
  • Provide opportunities for presentation of local research in surgery
  • Support the career development needs of medical students interested in surgery, particularly via our new guides, workshops, and mentoring scheme
  • Promote and support impressive surgical charities
  • Support the teaching needs of students during the surgical rotations in years 4 and 6, and the anatomy course in year 2.

What We Do:

We’ve got a full schedule for 2018 including talks, workshops, careers and fundraising events. We aim to connect students, clinicians and researchers to keep you informed about local, national and international opportunities in surgery.

This year we are piloting our careers initiative incorporating effective mentoring, targeted clinical anatomy workshops, and our written guides to surgical careers. We aim to make surgical careers more accessible and less intimidating.
