The International School of Surgery - ISS


The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh is an organisation dedicated to the pursuit of excellence and advancement in surgical practice, through its interest in education, training and examinations, its liaison with external medical bodies, and its representation of the modern surgical workforce.

The RCSEd operates as a modern international College with around 22,000 Fellows and Members based in over 100 countries worldwide. With nearly 40% of our membership located outside the UK, the ISS acts as a central point for our modern global membership network. The College prides itself on its reputation for friendliness and approachability, combined with innovation and prestige, and the individual attention given to all our College Fellows, Members, Affiliates and guests.

The ISS enhances the educational support that this College provides for its international Fellows and Members, from training and thereafter throughout their careers, by providing opportunities for continuing professional development and engagement with the College.

We are proud of being a truly global organisation and are dedicated to providing opportunities, support and resources for our international membership. The ISS aims to work even more closely with the RCSEd's international Fellows, Members, Affiliates and guests and provides unrivalled access to all that the College has to offer.
