Romanian Student Society of Surgery

Our identity

The Romanian Student Society of Surgery is a non-governmental organisation, sustained by a group of medical students who share the same passion for surgery and are driven by a common goal: to make sure that their community has all the tools it requires to provide the society with elite practitioners in the years to follow. Since its founding in 2004, our Society kept evolving and reaching more and more students, growing a strong, elaborate and versatile team, across the entire country.

Our achievements

16 years ago, the 6 founding members created the basis for the 10 branches that activate today in some of the biggest universities in Romania - each of these branches organises its specific workshops or scientific events, creating an ever-growing network of information sharing and technique improving.

Among our recent achievements is, of course, the first edition of SURGICON, a great success nevertheless. The number of actual participants doubled the estimation and we caught the eye of many international students, taking the first step towards the surgical map of Europe.

Our goals

The first edition's inovativeness and efficiency will certainly be challenging for us to exceed. Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we had to move the congress to the online version, which means that our signature, the #hands-on experience, will be eliminated in this particular setting. However, with a trustworthy and collaborating team, our purpose to offer the widest range of state of the art lectures on the latest breakthroughs and other scientific activities seems considerably easier to reach in an online setting.

We will try to help the participants and the speakers make the most out of this experience, hoping that coming to Romania during fall will continue to be the tradition again in 2021.
