Surgical Society

From the President

From learning complex surgical skills to networking with local Canberra surgeons, the ANU Surgical Society strives to bring the world of surgery to students. For me, while I may be biased, this is one of the most exciting societies because it provides what is often the first real hands-on surgical experience for ANU Medical Students.

COVID-19 has put a spanner in the works for the past few years. This year, we are determined to bring you a handful of brilliant events: suturing workshops, the annual Women in Surgery event, a networking evening, and the ‘Golden Humerus’ pub trivia night, to name a few. By the end of the year, you will be a whizz with a scalpel and forceps, have conquered hand ties with both hands, have bested one of Canberra’s orthopaedic surgeons with your anatomy trivia knowledge, and have a solid idea what a career in surgery looks like.

We have an amazing, strong team who will represent your year and let you know when exciting opportunities and surgical conferences around the country are coming up. We will keep you up-to-date with the latest news in the world of surgery and what is happening with other Australian Surgical Societies.

I am very excited for what we have planned this year and we all look forward to seeing you at events.

– Isabel
