|Wednesday, 27 February 2013|
RCSEd today launched the International School of Surgery (ISS); an exciting new venture which brings together the College’s wide range of international activities, events, courses and exams. The ISS will work to develop and deliver new international opportunities for the College’s Fellows and Members and support them through a combination of online and locally-delivered activities, with the full engagement of the RCSEd International Surgical Advisor network.
The aim of the ISS is to offer educational support for surgeons throughout their careers, from training and beyond, by providing opportunities for continuing professional development and engagement with the College. The ISS will develop in response to the needs of our International membership and the evolution of the profession.
Speaking on the launch of the ISS, RCSEd President, Mr Ian Ritchie said:
“The Royal College of Surgeons Of Edinburgh has represented the surgical and dental workforce for over 500 years. In that time we have grown from our foundation in Edinburgh, to become a modern, international network with some 19,000 Fellows, Members and Affiliates based in almost 100 countries worldwide.
We are proud of being a truly global College and have long been dedicated to providing opportunities, support and resources to our international membership. The International School of Surgery will allow us to work even more closely with that membership and provide them with unrivalled access to all that the College can offer. ”
