To honour the memories of Dr Leslie Cowlishaw and Professor Kenneth Russell, and to promote greater knowledge of medical history, the College holds the Cowlishaw Symposium every two years. Speakers are invited to present papers on topics drawn from the books in the Cowlishaw Collection. A feature of the Symposium is the Kenneth Fitzpatrick Russell Memorial Lecture, on a subject related to anatomy and/or medical history. Established in 1996, the Symposium is now one of the most important events in the College's calendar.
Plans for the next Cowlishaw Symposium will be announced at a future date. Please contact Katherine.Walsh@surgeons.org with any enquiries.
Registration includes lunch and refreshments throughout the day. A dinner, which incurs an additional cost, will be arranged for the evening prior to the conference.
If you'd like to be informed when registration opens or if you have any questions, please contact Katherine.Walsh@surgeons.org.
