The Society of Surgical Simulation and Barts Cancer Institute are hosting the first international online conference in surgical education. Professor Bijendra Patel, a leading expert in surgical education and founder of the society, will discuss topics as e-learning and how we can adapt our educational methods in times of crisis. Renowned keynote speakers, including Sir Aldred Cuschieri and Professor Shafi Ahmed, have been invited to give their insight on trending topics of surgical education and spark intriguing discussions. We also welcome scientific oral and snapshot presentations in various surgical topics. A live laparoscopic skill box trainer training session will be available to anyone interested in how practical skills can be taught and assessed electronically, allowing long-distance learning for surgical skills. The best presentation will gain an award and all accepted abstracts will be published in the Journal of Surgical Simulation.
Registration is FREE and abstract submissions are welcome for oral and snapshot presentations: www.ses2020.live
