EuroSurg is a European medical students and surgeons network who collaborate together to run multicentre international studies. In 2015, we launched our first collaborative student-led study: “EuroSurg-1: Obesity in major gastrointestinal surgery”. Our second study – IMAGINE (Ileus Management International) ran in 2018 and its main findings were recently published in the British Journal of Surgery.

EuroSurg offers a great opportunity for medical students to get involved in surgical research projects! Gaining knowledge and experience in research is essential for medical education of future doctors and surgeons. Furthermore, all students who collaborate in EuroSurg projects are PubMed citable in published studies.

Join us in our next study COMPASS!

COMPASS 🧭 will run in early 2020 looking at drain placement practices in colorectal surgery! The study will run in Europe, South Africa and Australasia.
