Introduction & Goals of Membership


The ISS/SIC, founded in 1902 in Brussels, Belgium, would like to function with two aims in mind: on the one hand it wants to function as a very benevolent "umbrella organization" to keep the "house of surgery" together for all problems of general interest to all surgical specialties, on the other hand, the ISS/SIC has also a vital interest in upkeeping general surgery as an important training base.

For the implementation of the advancement of the science and art of surgery, the following functions are provided:

World Congress of Surgery - the World Congress of Surgery WCS - formerly International Surgical Week

Postgraduate Courses under the auspices of the Collective Members Societies

World Journal of Surgery a journal produced by ISS and Springer

Newsletters and other publications 

The ISS/SIC does not visualize itself as a mass organization, it would, however, hope to group throughout the world surgeons willing to invest time and energy in a quality conscious international venture. Surgeons deciding to accept this challenge will soon find out that such an engagement is intellectually stimulating and humanly rewarding.
