Surgical Society cuts loose
24 March 2009
The UCT Surgical Society drew a healthy crowd when it launched its 2009 lecture series on 11 March with a talk by Assoc Prof Jakes Krige on Scalpels and Sutures: The evolution of surgery - from medieval to modern. The group is a student-managed academic society affiliated to and patronised by UCT's Department of Surgery. With over 600 registered members, the society holds claim to being one of the largest on campus. Its monthly lectures tackle cutting-edge (sic) topics. Here Prof Del Kahn, David-Mordechai Favara, Jess John Thadathilankal, guest speaker Krige, and Dr Sanju Sobnach, founder of the society, prepare for the evening.
