Surgical Innovation Competition 2018

Innovations in Surgery, Surgical Education, Training and Technology within the NHS

At the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, we are proud of our 500-year history of innovation, and of being the home of pioneers who, through their innovative ideas and commitment, have advanced surgery to modern standards.

Innovation helps our profession, and it helps our patients. We are committed to encouraging and supporting the modern surgical workforce to continue to push boundaries, and to lead and inspire innovation in all areas, for the benefit of everyone.

As part of our 2018 Triennial Conference, we are inviting trainees from ST3 to ST8, to put forward their ideas for innovations in surgery, surgical education, training and technology within the NHS.

The top entries will be invited to the conference to present their ideas to a panel including the College President, Professor Michael Lavelle-Jones, who will choose the overall winner.

Other high-scoring entries will be invited to display their ideas as e-posters at the conference, and an overall winner will be chosen from this group too.

This is a national competition and certificates will be awarded to all successful entrants for training portfolios.
