Finalists Confirmed for the RCSEd & Medtronic 2022/2023 Surgical Skills Competition

Finalists Confirmed for the RCSEd & Medtronic 2022/2023 Surgical Skills Competition

Following two exciting heats that put competitors' knowledge and abilities to the test, we can now confirm the grand finalists of the RCSEd & Medtronic 2022/2023 Surgical Skills Competition! 

The competition, a collaboration between the College and Medtronic, provides medical students with the chance to stretch their skills by competing against their peers from across the UK. Stage one saw participants completing an online quiz, with the highest scoring students from each medical school progressing to the next stage. These students were then sent a ‘skills box’ containing both surgical equipment and synthetic organs, and were then given four weeks to practice a set of skills and upload a video of themselves demonstrating these skills to the best of their ability. 

We are delighted that the following students will be competing in our Grand Final in Edinburgh on Saturday 15 April 2023:
