Upcoming Events

Throughout the year, SUSS holds a number of events for our members. As a society, we pride ourselves on the ability to provide the opportunities for students to advance their interest in surgery through the range of events we host – including: surgical skills, academic and professional development, and community-oriented events.

In addition our events, we are fortunate to have strong relationships with other medical and surgical societies. This allows for students to network with other like-minded individuals and attend a broad range of events.

On this page, you can learn about the broad array of events that SUSS is involved in. Check this page regularly to find out details about upcoming events, including student Grand Rounds, research symposiums, and career advice sessions.

Skills Workshops

As a pillar of our event portfolio, skills workshops are at the heart of SUSS teaching. These workshops are held specifically for each year group and we provide a range of opportunities matched to skill level. Students have the opportunity to learn a variety of suturing techniques, knot tying and insertion of chest tubes.
