  • Through our surgical skills workshops, you can practice laparoscopy, suturing, scrubbing, and more.

  • We help connect you with an individual mentor in the surgical field.

  • Our lunch talks featuring surgeon speakers and Residents Panel offer an inside perspective practicing surgery.

  • You can attend Surgical Grand Rounds to hear about recent advances in surgery and network with surgical faculty.
