The International School of Surgery - ISS


RCSEd's aim is to support you through every stage of your career, whether you are an undergraduate or a postgraduate trainee, or whether you are an established consultant. We are committed to your continuing professional development.

RCSEd facilitates a range of Fellowships for international surgeons in training who are based outside the UK and administers the International Medical Graduate Sponsorship Scheme (IMGSS)and the new RISFP programme. 

If you are in the early stages of your medical career, or have perhaps not decided yet if surgery is for you, RCSEd provides a range of materials to support your decision-making.

If you are a school student considering a career in surgery, we can help you with that too. As a first step, consider joining our Affiliate network to ensure that you are first in line for new developments and initiatives.
