Surgical Taster Camp
Surgical Taster Camp (formerly Surgical Taster Day STD) is one of the flagship events of SSAHK. Held annually at HKUMed and CUHK campus, thousands of secondary school students have joined this event over the years. As a participant, you will have a taste of the lives of medical students in both medical schools in Hong Kong. In addition, you will have the chance to practice various suturing techniques with esteemed surgeons in small group tutorials.
Open to senior secondary students.

Surgical Taster Camp Participant
In Surgical Taster Camp, I've made friends with my Joba/Joma (group coordinators) who are medical students from HKU/CUHK. This experience gave me an insight into the lives of medical students in Hong Kong; and prepared me for my studies now at CUHK Medicine.
If you are a secondary school student interested in studying medicine, I highly recommend you join this event!
