PUS Annual Conference: The Future of Surgery (14 April 2018)

Plymouth Undergraduate Surgeons are inviting you to our 2nd annual conference: The Future of Surgery.

This is a hot topic in surgery and the RCS has also recently initiated a commission to look into this. There will be ample workshops to improve basic surgical skills (including suturing and laparoscopy), in addition to CV-building and Women in Surgery workshops.

About: The Association of Surgeons in Training (ASiT)

The Association of Surgeons in Training (ASiT) is an independent professional body and registered charity which works to promote the highest standards in surgical training.

The Association was originally established in 1976 and is the second largest surgical specialty association in the UK with over 2,700 members, from all ten surgical specialties. ASiT membership costs just £40 when a medical student or £60 otherwise, serving the needs of trainees through training courses, grants, prizes and fellowships.

A membership highlight is the annual ASiT Conference, with over 700 delegates attending a weekend of educational courses, lectures and topical debate on all aspects of surgery and surgical training.

ASiT represents the views of surgical trainees through representation on the councils including the Surgical Royal Colleges, ISCP, and JCST. Unlike many others, ASiT remains independent of the Royal Colleges and professional medical organisations, and is run by trainees, for trainees.” – The Association of Surgeons in Training (ASiT) Website
