Surgical Society

Membership for the 2021/22 academic year will be purchasable from 01/08/2021.

ARU Surgical Society is a dynamic and interactive hub for all of those who are interested in the world of surgery. Our range of activities includes hosting of a range of broad or specific themed conferences and symposiums, developing hands-on surgical workshops and training platforms, as well as charitable and social events. We find ourselves proud to be the first student-run surgical society, aiming to further surgical experience in the educational heart of Essex County.

We aim to:

• Facilitate surgical exposure and education, advocate a holistic approach to patient care by considering surgical ethics, and sharpen skills required for the innovative surgeries of tomorrow.

• Invigorate interest in surgery to new students entering a course this year and the ones who were already part of last year Surgical Society, by organising several sessions on surgical skills;

• Build a society capable of organising and hosting major international events such as:

- The Virtual Women in Surgery Conference;
- Annual Surgical Conference
- Suturing & Laparoscopy Skills Sessions
- Academic ARU Surgical Society Live Webinar Series
- Global Surgery Conference

• Bring in the focus of surgical education and innovation at ARU and create a wider network of societies and healthcare associations;

Create a Mentoring Scheme for ARU aspiring surgeons!
