Surgical Skills Competition

Think you have what it takes to be a surgeon? Put yourself to the test and sign up for the RCSEd Medtronic Student Surgical Skills Competition 2019/2020.

The RCSEd Medtronic Student Surgical Skills Competition offers tomorrow's surgeons the chance to hone their skills by competing against their peers from across the UK. The aim of the contest is to give students the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment and skills through a series of surgical tasks. The competition also aims to promote the benefits of choosing a career in surgery and to help give future surgeons the confidence to forge their own path in medicine.

Across 20 Heats

The competition, which has been running since 2011, is spread across 20 regional heats where contestants must demonstrate their competencies in surgical techniques like knot tying, suturing and laparoscopy using the latest state-of-the-art surgical equipment.

Grand Final

The Grand Final takes place in Edinburgh in the new year with all those taking part receiving complementary hospitality at the College's Ten Hill Place Hotel. The Winner receives a two-year Affiliated Membership of the College as well as a trophy recognising their achievement.
