Postponed - Statement from Glasgow University Surgical Society
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Glasgow University Surgical Society has come to the decision to postpone our 11th Annual conference. This decision was difficult; however, we feel that it is the best course of action in light of the current advice from the public health authorities aimed to help prevent the spread of the corona virus.
The safety of the delegates, faculty and staff are our most poignant concern at this time and we hope to secure a future date which will allow all of our delegates and team to attend without concern.
Delegates have now been issued a full refund for their ticket cost and the committee will be in touch with those who submitted an abstract in due course.
We thank you for your understanding at this time and hope to welcome you to the conference at later date.
This year, Glasgow University Surgical Society’s (GUSS) National Undergraduate Surgical Conference promises a holistic peek into the world of surgery. The conference, taking place on 4th April 2020, will include talks from esteemed surgeons and researchers working across various surgical specialties; breakout sessions featuring inspiring patients who have undergone life-changing and lifesaving surgeries; a number of skills-related workshops; and the opportunity to experience virtual reality developed around medical education.
This full day conference will follow the theme: ‘A Life in your Hands’ and aims to highlight the immense impact that surgeons can have on a patients’ life, from the perspective of both patients’ and surgeons themselves. Alongside this, conference attendees will have the opportunity to build up their practical skills and CVs.
This event is suitable for medical students and early years trainees; all who feel they may benefit from the day are welcome.
