The Australasian Student’s Surgical Association (ASSA) is a not-for-profit association dedicated to representing the student surgical societies across Australia and New Zealand. The highlight of the ASSA’s calendar is the Australasian Students’ Surgical Conference (ASSC). ASSA has just announced that the conference for 2018 will be in May.
ASSC is an annual conference under Australasian Students’ Surgical Association and is supported by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS). It forms the ideal opportunity for surgically orientated students to meet like-minded individuals who share their passion for surgical excellence, research and innovation. Medical students may further explore surgical specialties, meet other students from Australia and New Zealand, and network with world-class surgeons.
Past conferences have utilised keynote speakers, research and skills workshops to impart information and resources to every attendee.

Sydney University Surgical Society is excited to host the annual seminar “Introduction to Surgery: SET and Beyond“. This night aims to educate students about surgery as a career and pathways for gaining entry to Surgical Education and Training (SET) programs.
This year we are fortunate to have Dr Sarah Aitken and Dr Pratik Rastogi provide their insights on the pathway to surgery.
Dr Aitken is a Vascular and Endovascular Surgeon at Concord Repatriation General Hospital, a Senior Lecturer at the University of Sydney, and an academic surgeon. Dr Aiken’s talk will provide insight into life as a surgeon, her career pathway, and surgical research.
Dr Rastogi, a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Registrar at RNSH, will discuss the RACS selection and training process. He will also talk about how research and postgraduate courses can fit into the surgical training and selection process.
Whether you’re interested in a career in surgery or simply want to learn more, this lecture is a fantastic opportunity, particularly for Stage 1 and 2 medical students, to gain insight into the surgical training process and a career in surgery.
Date: Tuesday, February 27, 2018.
Time: 6:00 – 7:30pm
