On the 6th of February 2017, we were excited to host our first event of the year; Speed Surgeon. We had the pleasure of having 7 incredible surgeons take the time to educate and inspire several students in a one-on-one setting. This is the second Speed Surgeon event that the Society has hosted and due to the success of last year’s event it was no surprise that the spaces available filled up within only a few hours after the RSVP form was released.
Surgeons representing several specialties including Trauma, Ophthalmology, Obstetrics and Gynaecology as well as Breast surgery to name a few were in attendance on the evening. Students were exposed to the variety of specialties as they rotated between the surgeons where they could ask any questions they had about the specialties or the surgeons themselves. The positive response from those in attendance is a testament to the incredible exposure the students received from attending this event. A special thank you must go to the surgeons who attended the event: Dr Williams, Dr Benn, Dr Klipin, Dr Murdoch, Dr Koranteng-Peprah, Dr Doherty and Dr Bischof.
