The Monash University Surgical Interest Group (MUSIG) is a not-for-profit, student run organisation, dedicated to promoting the profession of surgery to medical students at Monash University. Since the last edition of the Cutting Edge, MUSIG has been busy with several key events.
In March, MUSIG held a Surgical Innovations and Research Forum, where four Academic Surgeons and a current surgical Trainee highlighted the fascinating world of their chosen specialty and their involvement in ground-breaking research and academia. The event was keenly attended by students across all year levels, who thoroughly enjoyed the panel discussion at the conclusion of the event.
Surgical Skills Workshops
MUSIG and attending students would like to extend another heart-felt thanks to all Surgeons who assisted as tutors, and to the Departments of Surgery at the Central Clinical School, the School of Clinical Sciences (Monash Health), the School of Rural Health and the Department of Anatomy & Developmental Biology for their ongoing support.
