  • As tutors we look forward to being a part of this endeavour annually. It’s a privilege to have access to cadavers so we can support the development of our next generation of colleagues - an equally gratifying part of being a surgeon as the joy of treating patient! The organiser's hard work all year round is highly commendable! Hopefully, we’ll be there next year. Best wishes
