This year, the 8th annual Oxford Surgical Skills symposium was held on Saturday 4th December and was a huge success! It featured 6 practical stations:
1. Suturing exercises
2. Cardiothoracic surgery
3. Hernia repair
4. Laparoscopy simulator
5. Bowel anastomosis
6. Management of fractures
**The cost for attending the event is £10 and lunch is also included**
An initial deposit of £50 is required to secure your place, with a refund of £40 given upon attendance of the course (please note that this cost is purely to ensure that everyone who signs up actually goes on to attend the event as places are limited).
The actual total cost for the event is in the region of £20,000, and we are extremely grateful to our sponsors, Medtronic, for enabling this event to occur. Such events usually cost delegates around £500-£800 per person, and many junior doctors attend several such courses per year as they look great for CT/ST job applications, so this really is a fantastic opportunity.
**All delegates will receive a certificate confirming attendance, and prizes will be awarded to those showing exceptional surgical potential**.
