The Edinburgh Student Surgical Society (ESSS) was founded in 2005 to provide extra opportunities, in the field of surgery, to medical students.
We organise regular surgical skills tutorials to facilitate members developing their abilities in surgery. These include beginner and advanced suturing, tendon repair, laparoscopy and plastic surgery. Regardless of career intentions, all graduating doctors need to be able to suture a simple a wound and we offer a forum to develop and improve this key skill.
We also organise and host talks and networking events to educate members on the many facets of surgical careers. These include our annual careers evening and women in surgery evening. Coupled with this, we host a national surgical conference each March, providing students the oportunity to present their surgically relevent research projects, to hear from world renowned surgeons in various fields and partake in workshops to develop surgical skills.
We encourage all our members to take a more active role in surgery and related activities and medical specialties to build their CV and forge a path to a successful future career in surgery.
