The Student Audit and Research in Surgery Collaborative (STARSurg) is the UK’s first national student-led research collaborative. STARSurg empowers students from all 33 medical schools in the UK to participate in high quality national audit and research studies in surgery which aim to improve patient care.

STARSurg fosters academic and research training, promotes evidence-based practice and builds a culture of collaboration necessary for 21st century medicine.

STARSurg continues to grow internationally and has since delivered several multi-centre and student-led national studies, which to date have included thousands of collaborators and over ten thousand patients across the UK and Ireland.

We consistently publish papers in major journals, and have significant impact through presentations across the world.
