The Philadelphia Surgery Conference is one of the largest student run events in the country. Hosted by the Wisely Surgical Association at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, participating students will have the opportunity to interact with surgical specialists, ranging from residents to program directors, and begin honing a variety of surgical skills during the four workshop sessions. Students will also become certified in bleeding control by completing the "Stop the Bleed" certification course, and will hear from some of the best surgeons in the region about their respective paths to a career in surgery during the surgeon lunch talk session.
Hundreds of students from both osteopathic and allopathic schools in the Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey area are invited to attend. This year's conference will build on the successes of previous conferences by focusing on leadership and initiative in the surgical field. Workshops and simulations will highlight the innovative procedures and technology that surgeons are using in their practices today.
