Surgery is a small community and it is imperative that we grow in Synergy instead of Silos. This year we have taken the initiative of joining hands with students and surgery-related groups working in other medical colleges across the country and internationally in an effort to share opportunities for the mutual benefit of all aspiring surgeons. Together we will make the impossible possible, In Sha Allah!
American College of Surgeons International SIG directory
The American College of Surgeons (ACS) is a scientific and educational association of surgeons that was founded in 1913 to improve the quality of care for the surgical patient by setting high standards for surgical education and practice. Surgery Interest Group joined the International SIG Directory of ACS in February 2020 with the aim of better connectivity and resource sharing with groups working towards similar objectives across the globe.
Association of Women Surgeons
The Association of Women Surgeons (AWS), founded in 1981, is a not-for-profit educational and professional organization. With approximately 3,000 members of all genders, AWS is one of the largest organizations dedicated to enhancing the interaction and exchange of information between women surgeons. Truly an international organization, AWS has members in over 40 countries. (Application is in progress)
International Association of Student Surgical Societies
Student surgical societies encourage surgical exposure, interest, leadership, and education at a pre-specialist level and, in so doing, mould the world’s next generation of surgeons. IASSS aims to unite the world’s existing student surgical interest groups, facilitate the creation of new ones, and ensure every aspiring surgeon around the world has the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals locally and internationally. Through the IASSS network, we hope that surgical societies across the globe can work together to set the agenda for the future of surgery.
