What is a surgeon in the 21st century?

I'm looking forward to going along to this talk by Ian Hutchinson at the Osler Club of London in February. Iain Hutchison is a well known oral and maxillofacial surgeon at Barts, London. He set up the Facial Surgery Research Foundation ten years ago.

I became interested in facial surgery as medical student and remember visiting the 'Saving Faces' exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. The collection of portraits of patients at various stages of facial reconstruction can be viewed on the charity's website.

By the way The Osler Club of London was founded in 1928 to encourage the study of the History of Medicine and remember Sir William Osler. It's based at the Royal College of Physicians.
