Surgery Interest Group (SCRUBS)


SCRUBS is a student-run organization designed to offer a well-rounded perspective of the multiple fields within surgery, the life of a surgeon, and what it takes to be a surgeon.

Monthly meetings are conducted at a surgeon's home where participants enjoy dinner and a brief presentation by a physician from a particular field within surgery. Meetings also include hands-on instructional sessions by the host surgeon that focus on skills such as knot tying and suturing. A special session in the surgical skills lab is also a highlight of SCRUBS.
