ABSTRACT SUBMISSION HAS NOW CLOSED

The National Surgical Symposium (NSS) is a fantastic platform for medical students, surgical trainees and senior clinicians to present their research, form collaborations and meet the current leaders influencing surgical research and innovation. There will be several talks from prominent and influential guests alongside the presentation of high quality research.

Feedback from the 1st Annual Meeting held last year at the Royal College of Surgeons of England was excellent. This year promises to be even better, with high profile guest speakers, fantastic presentation opportunities and high-quality consultant-led practical workshops.

The National Surgical Symposium 2014 will be held on Saturday 29th November 2014 at the Manchester Conference Centre.  This event is supported by the Royal College of Surgeons of England (RCS) and the Society of Academic & Research Surgery (SARS).
