Research is a recent addition to the SSSM mission.
Engaging students in surgical research, either by direct invitation to participate as investigators or indirectly by developing and improving communication channels between students and clinician-researchers, is a key objective for the SSSM in 2018, and a focus for the society in years to come. This is particularly important given the emphasis on research for training programs.
The SSSM aims to invite clinicians who are actively participating in research within their field to be guests at our events, thus providing an opportunity for both students and researchers. If you are participating in research and have opportunities available to students, please contact us.
