TSSS has provided me with a platform to share my love of surgery with other students and learn from their skills and experiences. Even as a "junior" student there are numerous opportunities catered to my level of experience to develop my skills and knowledge.

TSSS goes the extra mile to prepare us for our future, while making meaningful contributions to people’s lives along the way.
