Our 22 research groups, based around 18 research themes, work together under a common goal of education and surgical intervention.
We offer opportunities for research training for clinical and non-clinical graduates, and are responsible for delivering the surgical training to Medical School undergraduates.
We aim to showcase our research, inspire the younger generation, engage with the local community and raise debate on the impact of science on society.
Surgical Grand Rounds
The Surgical Grand Rounds are the key educational meetings for consultants, juniors and medical students. Presentations revolve around clinical cases and are followed by lively, educational discussion.
