The Association of Surgeons in Training Silver Scalpel Award

The ASiT Silver Scalpel Award: 
Recognising Excellence in Surgical Training since 2000


Over the past decade the prestigious Silver Scalpel Award has played a vital part in recognising trainers that go the extra mile for their trainees, while at the same time promoting the highest standards of surgical training. 

At a time of constant flux in the NHS, with training increasingly squeezed by demands on service, it is more important than ever that we recognise and reward good trainers. 

Good training goes hand in hand with providing excellent patient care, and Silver Scalpel winners also deliver an exemplary service to their patients by creating a positive clinical environment and learning culture for trainees. 

All shortlisted Silver Scalpel Award nominees will be invited to our ASiT 2019 Conference in Belfast. The winner will be announced at the Silver Scalpel Award ceremony during our Gala dinner on Saturday March 23rd, 2019.


ASiT are delighted to announce that the winner of the 2018 Silver Scalpel Award was Miss Stella Vig, Consultant Vascular and General Surgeon, Croydon University Hospital. 

Miss Stella Vig was announced as the the Silver Scalpel award recipient and received the award from Mr David O'Regan at the 2018 ASiT International Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland.


ASiT are grateful to Swann-Morton who continue to support this prestigious award with Swann-Morton Silver Scalpel trophy.
