Why Join Us

Become an active member of IASSS today to join a network of passionate future surgeons. Our members enjoy countless research, career development, leadership, and skills development opportunities.


Societal Activities

Exchange ideas regarding academic lectures, skills workshops, conferences, elective programs, anatomy workshops, surgical training workshops to develop surgical expertise for aspiring surgeons in your region. Our network will help establish or expand a surgical society in your region.



Establish links with surgical societies, like-minded aspiring surgical care providers, and surgeons across the globe.



Foster international connections with surgical societies around the world in order to establish clinical and/or research electives and exchanges in a vast array of surgical disciplines.



Share your research papers and cultivate your research ideas about surgical research topics to further academic surgery in your region.



Forge long-lasting relationships that will benefit you and your fellow surgical society members throughout your careers from medical student time to residency to fellowship.



Partake in the global movement to establish surgical interest groups at all of the world’s medical schools. If your university does not yet have a surgical society, the members of the IASSS will support you in starting up a society of your own.

How to Join Us

Any official student surgical society that has a web presence (either a website or a facebook group) will be added to a list of IASSS surgical societies members via our website. This list will have a link to their website, facebook group and email address. Only official societies affiliated with a tertiary academic institution may join as IASSS members.

Join us now as an individual or society!
