Apply to Become a National Delegate for the IASSS
The International Association of Student Surgical Societies (IASSS) is the official, pre-specialist affiliated society of the International Society of Surgery (ISS-SIC).
We represent a community of aspiring surgical care physicians (including surgical, anaesthetic and allied health professionals) at various stages of training. Our organisation is comprised of students, junior doctors, trainees and residents from across the globe.
The IASSS team aims to foster a pre-specialist passion for surgical care and to cultivate a passion for safe, equitable, accessible surgical care for all.
We are hoping to connect with more surgical enthusiasts by recruiting national delegates (ND) from each region in the following continents: Africa, Asia, Oceania, North America and South America.
Each continent has an appointed chapter lead who will look after the national delegates of the associated region.
This role involves the following responsibilities and duties:
- Representing your region as the official spokesperson and point of contact for IASSS activities.
- Holding surgically relevant academic, surgical skills or research projects.
- Liaising with your relevant chapter lead in planning and holding these events.
If you are successful in your application to become an ND you will be assuming the role for an 18 month period. All positions will be open from 31 March 2021 till 30 September 2022.
If you are interested in applying, fill in this form. All successful candidates will be notified shortly thereafter.
