This year, the traditional Golden Scalpel surgery olympics, organised by RSU’s Department of Surgery, will take place on 20 April (starts at 15:00). Third through sixth year RSU medical students are welcome to participate in the multidisciplinary competition where the budding surgeons contend in several theoretical and practical aspects to test their knowledge, skill and ingenuity.
The winner is awarded the challenge trophy, the Golden Scalpel, introduced last year. It is also the symbol of the University’s Surgery Interest Group.
Competition venue: premises of the Department of Surgery, Pauls Stradiņš Clinical University Hospital (Block 24, 2nd floor), 13 Pilsoņu Street, Rīga.
