    Hello and welcome to SURGICON 2022!

    This year we are very excited to organise the fourth edition of RSSS’ Congress, SURGICON, and we truly hope that this will be the best untill now!

    We start our journey with lots of ambitious plans for which we have brought together the most hard working and brilliant team, in order for you to have an amazing experience here, at SURGICON 2022!

    Consider this event as an invitation to explore the impressive universe of surgery, among various options of specialized workshops, useful conferences and scientific competitions. For a little bit of extra-fun, we prepare an entertaining social program, so you can meet our team of volunteers and all of the surgery-enthusiast participants!

    We challenge you to join our adventure and to take part into the most surprising surgical congress for students!

    I am both grateful and honoured to be part of SURGICON's organizing team. It is a big challenge for me, but I believe that a project as outstanding as this one can only motivate one to become a better version of himself. 

    My RSSS journey began years ago as a follow-up to the first workshops I attended as a freshman. Over the years, I have joined several departments and projects that have helped me grow as an individual.

    The fourth edition of SURGICON comes with new opportunities and more on-site events, allowing us the chance to interact more with each other.

    Now we offer you the chance to take a big step toward surgery. Our hands-on workshops will allow you to gain impressive surgical skills, while the live surgeries and conferences with world-renowned surgeons will broaden your medical horizons. 

    There is a lot to discover through our congress for everybody and we hope you will enjoy SURGICON 2022!

    It is with great pleasure that I invite you to the 4th edition of SURGICON - The International Surgical Congress for Students that is to be held in Bucharest between the 27th-30th of October 2022!

    This year we are planning to bring back the on-site conferences, for you to be able to meet our speakers in person and create long lasting memories. For those of you who are still not able to travel, don't worry, you can still enjoy the scientific programme from the safety of your homes, as we will broadcast all of the conferences, the scientific competition and our now emblematic Live Surgery sessions.

    It is a great privilege to have a motivated and involved team by my side that prepares everything in order for you, dear participants, to have the best experience possible.

    My favourite SURGICON memory is meeting the first speaker for which I had prepared an invitation. It was a moment of realisation for me, that by organising this congress we can truly make our dreams come true. Through the years, I have learnt lots of things and got the chance of creating powerful memories that I will forever cherish.

    I am very grateful that I got to be part of this amazing event from the first edition to now the 4th that gets to be organised at the begining of my 6th year of medical school. I can honestly say that I have made my greatest progress here, challenged myself and developed new skills.

    I can only wish for you to make out of SURGICON an insightful experience and an important step in your future career.

    Let's shape the future of surgery together!

    Hello! I'm Ioana and I'll be the Communications Vicepresident for this year's edition of SURGICON! 

    Ever since we started writing the SURGICON 2022 story, I couldn't wait for you to see the visual identity of the next edition of the congress. From texts to videos and from Instagram to TikTok, we hope our content will give you a detailed picture of what SURGICON represents. 

    I've started my SURGICON journey as a participant at the first edition, when I was a first year student. It was a truly memorable experience, having the chance to hear from world-renowned speakers and participate in complex workshops. That experience made me want to see more of SURGICON, and it motivated me to apply as a volunteer in the following years.

    It’s lights out and away we go…This is what they say in Formula 1 at the beginning of every race and then the thrill, the adrenaline takes over and you simply enjoy every bit of it. This is how SURGICON is to me. This is my fourth edition and I still enjoy the adrenaline of every year. After two years when the pandemic took away from me the whole experience of this amazing project, I am happy to be back. The on-site conferences, the workshops, the parties…everything is coming back to life and I am thrilled about it. Without further ado: it’s lights out and away we go!

    The Gala Dinner from the first edition is my favourite memory from SURGICON, where I had the possibility of engaging with the speakers and discover that all them are amazing persons, not only amazing doctors

    Hello, my name is Roxana and I am one of the coordinators of the Workshops & Live Surgery Department. My team and I are preparing the best experience you can have as a medical student by organizing a consistent variety of hands-on surgical workshops. We are working intensely and very passionately for you to discover in the best way possible a large variety of specialities by learning the main surgical procedures. Also, our colleagues from the Technical Team are helping us to broadcast some interesting surgeries live from the OR.

    My most precious memory from last year’s edition of  SURGICON is definitely the experience of coordinating the Thoracic Surgery workshop in which I had the opportunity to introduce the participants into the amazing world of this speciality by teaching them how to perform pulmonary segmental resection and tracheal anastomosis.

    Our department's job is to create content for our website and social media pages, in order to paint a pleasant but realistic image of the SURGICON experience, but also to share information regarding our congress and keep in touch with our partner congresses.

    My favorite SURGICON memory is seeing the bright and excited faces of the participants who took part in the workshops I coordinated. This made me wish to do more and be more involved in this story.

I really hope you will enjoy the welcome bags that me and my “elves” are crafting with all the surgical magic.

    Even though I was part of SURGICON since the beginning, the edition I will remember forever is last year’s one: I was part of the Graphic Design Department, learning a lot of new things and working with my dearest friends.

    Hello! I am Luciana Hrib and this year I will be the coordinator of the Graphic design department. This department has a very special place in my heart as graphic design gave me the opportunity to express my creativity and also meet so many cool and kind people that really helped me develop and make me enjoy working in this department even more. I feel this rush as I am quite nervous and excited at the same time to be part of the organising committee and I really hope me and my team will be able to envision and create a memorable image for SURGICON 2022. Keep in mind that “Design is thinking made visual” and that’s why we are here.

    Hello everyone, my name is Bianca and i will be the HR coordinator of this year’s Surgicon edition! “I came for the workshops and stayed for the people” is something i usually hear from our volunteers and there is no better feeling than seeing people creating unbreakable bonds at our congress. Always eager to help, with a sparkle of fine attention to details and a lot of excitement for the upcoming conferences and workshops, the HR carries a part of the work behind the congress.

    Thinking back on last year’s edition, the memories i will never forget are the almost sleepless nights during the congress when everyone was working hard to make sure everything goes perfectly, randomly laughing and creating friendships that will last based on what we have in common: the love for surgery.

    My name is Andrușa and I am the coordinator of the Fundraising department at SURGICON 2022! I'm really excited to be a part of this edition's story and to be able to help out with its evolution and wonderful projects. 

    My team is represented by a group of enthusiastic students, with a lot of energy, persuasion and amazing social skills. Our mission this year will be to reach out to potential partners and sponsors that could help improve the various aspects of the organisation process through their material intervention. 

    We will be able to meet with you all during the Congress days, when we will take care of the sponsors expo area and promotional materials, but you can reach out to us much sooner than that if you wish to become a part of the Fundraising team! 

    Thank you so much for choosing SURGICON - I promise it will be an astounding experience, that you will hold dear for a very long time.

    I remember many memorable moments from  SURGICON 2021 and it is very hard to pick a favorite, the whole congress was my favorite because of the team we had. We collaborated incredibly well together and the atmosphere in our team was so friendly that I didn't feel the pressure of managing a stream with over 100 people. I take this opportunity to thank the Tech Team for making SURGICON 2021 as one of my favorite projects I've ever been part of.

    This edition of SURGICON I hope will be one you will never forget. Aside from workshops and conferences I think we are all here to make new friends, have fun and enjoy every facet of this event. The Social Department and I plan to fill your free time with lots of activities: city tours, parties, games and lots more. Even if this event is centered on science, don’t let other opportunities pass you by and don’t forget to have a wonderful time.
