The Lister Surgical Skills Competition, in association with Johnson & Johnson Medical Companies, has seen regional heats taking place throughout the UK, from August to December 2011, to shortlist the top medical students from each region for the Grand Final of the competition which will take place at The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd) on Saturday 11 February 2012.
The Wales Heat of the competition took place on Monday 10 October 2011 to coincide with the 2nd All Wales Student Research Symposium at WIMAT, Cardiff. The events were run one after the other so that students could get involved with both of these exciting ventures. Congratulations to runner-up, John Mason from Cardiff University and winner, Daniel Sitaranjan from Swansea University. Daniel will now go through to the Grand Final of the Competition on Saturday 11 February 2012 to to be in with a chance to win a week at the Johnson & Johnson Medical Companies Training Institute in Hamburg.
