Join our networks and forums
Women in Surgery (WinS) is a national initiative dedicated to encouraging, enabling and inspiring women to fulfil their surgical career ambitions. We have more than 6,000 women in our network, and a Forum of elected members who work on key projects throughout the year. Find out how you can get involved with this work.
Collaborate with likeminded colleagues from both clinical and non-clinical backgrounds as part of our Expert Advisory Network. The network is designed for professionals from any discipline who have a special interest in technology, research, innovation or education, and represents a unique opportunity to help shape the RCS’s future learning agenda.
Fellowships, awards and grants
We offer a wide range of research fellowships, awards, grants and lectureships to support all career stages, from medical students through to consultants working in university departments and hospitals throughout the UK and abroad, enhancing our surgical research aims and ambitions.
