About Us

CiS conference is organised by a faculty of Specialty Training Registrars from almost all of the surgical specialties. The objectives of the conference are to give delegates a trainee’s insight into the surgical world, and improve their chances of getting onto the surgical ladder.

Most of the faculty were recruited into surgery through the current selection system. The delegates can expect a day full of invaluable information about a career in surgery.
