SUMS and SUSS are proud to be hosting the ultimate medical turf war, pitching six of Sydney’s brightest minds against one another with the hopes of answering medicine’s eternal question: Which specialty is better, surgery or medicine?
The topic up for debate is “To Cut Is To Cure”, with the surgeons arguing the affirmative and physicians arguing the negative. The winning team will be decided by audience vote, so we’re anticipating (and encouraging) plenty of light-hearted banter between the two teams.
