The goal of the Undergraduate Surgery Interest Group is to create unique opportunities for pre-medical students to explore surgery and gain exposure to the thought processes of clinical decision-making. We recognize that our members are at a relatively early step in their higher education, and this is an important time to to discover and explore the reasons why we want to become physicians. As such, our ultimate goal is to immerse students in settings where they can appreciate the complexity, significance, and beauty of the work that characterizes not only surgery, but all of medicine.
