About Swedish Surgical Society

The aim of the Swedish Surgical Society is to promote the interests of its members, surgeons and surgeons-in-training in Sweden.

The main objective is to make continuous professional development possible at all levels of surgical training. The Society also aims to spread new knowledge related to matters important for practicing surgeons, to aid surgical science and research, and be a partner with other surgical societies regionally and internationally. The Society also is an important partner for Swedish health officials and politicians, giving advice on matters relating to surgical care.

Annual Congress

Every year in the third week of August, the Society organises the Surgical Week, a conference aiming to distribute knowledge, connect surgeons with each other, and to train and develop surgeons’ competence. All surgical departments in Sweden can apply to host this conference; hence, the location of the conference varies. The conference is highly appreciated and important for the Society’s members.
