2017 is the 150th anniversary of Joseph Lister’s lecture on the theory of antiseptic surgery, which he delivered in the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. To mark this, the Glasgow University Surgical Society (GUSS) has chosen to celebrate Lister’s achievements through the theme of their conference ‘How far has surgery come?’
This is a full day conference for medical students with an interest in surgery. The programme will include speaker presentations, surgical skills workshops, oral/ poster presentations, and a question time debate.
The programme will provide students with a background in the major advancements in surgery to date, and discuss potential future surgical developments from the various perspectives of the conference speakers.
The GUSS conference offers an excellent opportunity for students to explore their interest in surgery, and network with those working in the surgical field. Students who present their projects or research to their peers will be eligible to win a GUSS award for the best poster or oral presentation.
Who should attend
Medical students with an interest in surgery or perioperative care
