The SUSS City2Surf team caught up with burns survivor and Interplast Australia & New Zealand Ambassador Turia Pitt at the University of Sydney on the weekend. The 60 team members will run in Interplast scrubs and have already raised $6100 for Interplast.
See the story in the Daily Telegraph.
The inaugural NSW Students’ Surgical Skills Competition (SSSC) was held at Liverpool Hospital over the weekend of August 2-3, 2014. The University of Sydney team competed against teams from other NSW medical schools: UNSW, UWS, UOW, UND and Newcastle.
The SSSC is a six station surgical skills competition based on the Golden Scalpel Games run by NSW HETI. Stations are designed and judged by consultant surgeons and include early management of severe trauma, surgical anatomy & radiology, wound closure, laparoscopic skills, instrument identification and hand-sewn bowel anastomosis. All stations placed great emphasis on teamwork and professionalism.
Sydney University Surgical Society were victorious this year, taking out the SSSC award. Congratulations to the successful team:
