About Us

SurgQ8 is a subdivision of the Kuwait Association of Surgeons (KAS) specialized in providing virtual surgical education for different surgery program residents. It is a platform that was first established during the pandemic of COVID-19 with the aim of maintaining the delivery of surgical education for physicians during their residency training. Due to the precautionary measures taken worldwide due to this pandemic, previously arranged lectures and discussions are no longer deemed possible, and as high-quality surgical education is one of KAS objectives, SurgQ8 was established to serve as a bridge for residents to continue their learning process through providing them with the opportunity to get exposed to and discuss selected surgical topics given by highly qualified educators across the Gulf region and the world.

We, in SurgQ8, have endeavored to provide all the educational needs of surgical residents through our virtual learning platform. These include but are not limited to: surgical review sessions, mock exams, journal clubs, and other services.
