About this Event

Surgeons 4 Surgeons are a group setup by junior doctors to help others who are keen on surgery get into training. On the weekend of 30th-31st of March 2019 we are running a 2 day course at the Kent County Cricket Club, designed to help aspiring surgeons pass the MRCS part A exam. All teachers are junior doctors who have passed the newest iteration of the examination and so offer knowledge and insight that can be found nowhere else.
