Surgery is one of the most satisfying careers in medicine, offering a hands-on opportunity to save and transform lives. The Royal College of Surgeons provides careers information, advice and practical support for surgeons at all stages of their career - from school students to consultants.
Whatever your career stage, we’re here to support you
Thinking about volunteering?
Medical student? Foundation doctor? Trainee? We need you to teach basic surgical skills and give careers presentations at events across the country. If you are interested in supporting these ventures please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org stating your grade and location.
Virtual networking and peer support
The Women in Surgery (WinS) directory lists surgeons willing to talk to student, trainees and surgeons about issues important to them. Join the WinS network to support other women, then search the directory if you would like to talk to a colleague about life as a woman surgeon.
