There are many ways that you can get involved with the important work that we do. From research to fundraising there are plenty of opportunities for you to help change the face of surgery.

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 and grants, education awards, and senior clinical fellowships to support all career stages, from medical students through to consultants working throughout the UK and abroad, enhancing our surgical research aims and ambitions and supporting our members in continuing their education. There are also a number of fellowships in oral and dental research available through the FDS.
Get involved locally
Become a surgical tutor or a regional representative and act as a local representative for members in your area. Becoming a surgical tutor includes supporting all aspects of surgical training and education within trusts, local health boards (LHBs) and hospitals. Find out more about RCS England Outreach.
