SSF Member Benefits


Learn basic surgical skills and suture techniques like a pro. We have trained over 500 medical students in a standardized basic surgical skills course that is taught by experienced student trainers. Under the instruction of seasoned surgeons from the Surgical Society of Kenya (SSK) and surgical residents, SSF members have also been taught how to perform more complex procedures like anastomoses, tendon, and vessel repair. With the skills and confidence that they acquire from the SSF trainings, many students then make an effort to go to theatre and perfect their skills with surgeons.


Attend exclusive webinars, network and get mentored by a surgeon. Through our partnerships with regional, and international organisations like SSK, InciSioN, and EASSS we are able to get access and information to global events and news regarding conferences, advocacy programs, scholarships, internships, and a lot more. This gives our members exposure to all things surgical on a global stag


Members are given opportunities to assist in ongoing research by registrars and consultants, giving them first hand experience of data collection and its subtleties. Soon they will be trained in all aspects of research which will enable them to design studies, and draft proposals.
