The mission of the Surgery Interest Group (SIG) is to allow students with an interest in surgical specialties to gain experience as well as build professional connections within the field of surgery. SIG periodically invites accomplished surgeons to serve as guest speakers and student mentors. SIG establishes shadowing opportunities in operating rooms of the major hospitals in the area as well as exposes students to surgical guest speakers. These physicians will foster student interest in surgery, serve as potential mentors to students, as well as provide students with opportunities for clinical experience. Members are encouraged to register and become members of the American College of Surgeons.
