SIG provides students with information about the professional activities of surgeons in the major, recognized surgical specialties. Surgical resident panels will enable members to learn about the timing, structure and core competencies of residency training programs in the various surgical specialties. Members will discuss cultural and lifestyle issues related to post-graduate career choices, as well as sociopolitical issues facing surgical specialists today. Presentations by attendings will give members perspective on the day-to-day of surgical specialists. Other activities including knot tying, suturing, and laparoscopic workshops as well as a shadowing program provide access to individual clinical experiences with surgeons at UMMC.
