The London Surgical Symposium is run by Imperial College London. It is a London based meeting open to all and it aims to deliver high quality, definitive lectures on important and controversial topics in surgery. It is inclusive, and we strongly encourage trainees, health professionals allied to surgery and clinical researchers in surgery to submit their work. We accept clinical audits as well as original research. 

 

A major purpose of this program is to create a social and professional network of surgeons and clinicians across London surgery and we welcome those from all hospitals both internationally and nationally.

We believe that the most important conversations often occur before or after the meeting and we encourage you to join the debate with us using #LSS2018
