The Exeter Surgical Society would like to very proudly announce that after a fantastic podium presentation from our President, Waheed-Ul-Rahman Ahmed and Events Lead, Miriam Beattie (Founders of the Inaugural South West Plastic Surgery Conference), we have been selected as the WINNERS of the Association of Surgeons in Training (ASIT) Battle of the Student Surgical Societies 2018!

The finale was held at the ASIT International Conference, in Edinburgh, which is one of the largest surgical conferences in the UK with over 700 delegates in attendance! 

The first place prize includes a grant of £500 which will help support our event concept, the Inaugural South West Plastic Surgery Conference, as well as an opportunity to be published in the ASIT Yearbook!

It’s been MONTHS of planning and preparation to develop the Inaugural South West Plastic Surgery Conference, alongside our Society patron Mr Vikram Devaraj FRCS(Plast). We really hope to bring plastic surgery insight to the South West on 5th May!

We hope you will join us in celebrating this tremendous achievement.

We have now sold out of all tickets for our Conference, but you can join the waiting list here:, or for more information:

We are very much looking forward to seeing you all on 5th May!
