Affiliate Network

Affiliation with The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh is a sensible step for any student, foundation doctor or trainee with an interest in surgery. It signals your intention to follow a career in surgery, and will give you access to a range of opportunities that you might otherwise miss out on.

As well as being a valuable addition to your CV, affiliating to the Student, Foundation Doctors' or Pre-MRCS Network gives you access to a wide range of benefits.

  • Discounted fees on relevant courses and events.
  • Access to bursaries and grants.
  • College rcsed.net email address and mailbox to use throughout your surgical career.
  • Access to exclusive educational resources including webinars, reports, posters, videos of lectures and much more.
  • Acland Anatomy - a versatile educational resource, valuable to those at all career stages, but of particular benefit to Affiliates studying for the MRCS examination, especially those with restricted access to anatomy specimens.
  • Access to networking events with College Office Bearers and senior surgeons in your area.
  • Career advice and professional support from your local Regional Surgical Adviser.
  • Certificate of Affiliation for your portfolio.
  • Quarterly copies of the College's award-winning publication Surgeons' News to which you can contribute.
