The Student Surgical Society

"Life is short, the art long, opportunity fleeting, experiment treacherous, judgment difficult."

~ Hippocrates

The principle objective of the Student Surgical Society is to provide an avenue of accelerated professional training and exposure for medical students with an acute interest in surgery. Through skills development workshops, informative seminars, a growing cache of resources, and a team of dedicated faculty advisors we feel confident in our ability to satisfy this objective.

We hope that our consolidated efforts will enable students of medicine at the University of Tennessee to maximize their time and capitalize on opportunity, ultimately allowing them to become the class of surgeon that their future patients deserve.
