The Surgeons' Day Conference is back for 2018, we are very excited and hope you can join us! This is a unique opportunity for Christian surgeons of all levels and specialties to meet together.

The aim of the conference is to explore varied aspects of a surgical career and consider how to do so with a 'kingdom living' perspective. Through a range of talks and informal discussions we will consider these issues together.

There will be time to break into regional and specialty-specific groups in order to meet and encourage one another. Let's seek to faithfully serve the master and truly 'live life in all its fullness'.

This year's conference has been organised by the Oxford group of surgeons.
