The Romanian Student Society of Surgery is a non-governmental organisation, sustained by a group of medical students who share the same passion for surgery and are driven by a common goal: to make sure that their community has all the tools it requires to provide the society with elite practitioners in the years to follow. Since its founding in 2004, our society kept evolving and reaching more and more students, growing a strong, elaborate and versatile team, across the entire country.
16 years ago, the 6 founding members created the basis for the 10 branches that activate today in some of the biggest universities in Romania – each of these branches organises its specific workshops or scientific events, creating an ever-growing network of information sharing and technique improving.
Among our recent achievements is, of course, the first edition of SURGICON, a great success nevertheless. The number of actual participants doubled the estimation and we caught the eye of many international students, taking the first step towards the surgical map of Europe.
SSCR Craiova branch managed to be remarkable at national level through numerous activities, organizing in particular the workshops:
- Advanced Surgical Techniques (organized exclusively in our branch),
- Basic Ophthalmology Surgical Skills (including only in our branch certain notions),
- Live Applied Surgical Techniques (made exclusively in our branch),
Moreover there are to be mentioned activities before each workshop to re-evaluate and train the trainers, a large number of Scientific Paper Presentations, the integration of the English language section in our activities, as well as the 3rd position nationwide, in terms of the number of contributing/active members, in the academic year 2015-2016 all this being achieved with the highly valuable professional relationship with the medical and university staff.
