The Rudolph Matas Surgical Society (RMSS) is a student-run organization dedicated to advancing knowledge of the art and science of surgery through education, experiential opportunities, and research. Through the RMSS- sponsored Surgical Observation Program, the first of its kind in North American medical schools, first- and second-year students have the opportunity to observe surgery from within the operating field and interact with surgeons performing procedures. In addition, RMSS co-sponsors a Suture Clinic to instruct students on suturing technique. RMSS also hosts monthly speaking events where medical professionals offer a wide array of perspectives on the field of surgery, its newest advancements, and what it means to be a surgical resident or attending surgeon in medicine today. Through its programs and events, RMSS seeks to provide Tulane medical students with opportunities to explore the exciting field of surgery.
