International activity is an important aspect of the College’s involvement in education, assessment and professional standards. The College’s reach overseas has been reinforced by International Surgical Advisers whose invaluable feedback makes us more relevant. 40% of the membership are International. The pandemic has brought us closer to discuss issues which are relevant and to offer solutions.

  • Mr Pala Rajesh, Vice-President RCSEd, who will chair the session introducing the college’s vision and aspiration for International graduates.
