EducationoftheNextGeneration

Despite a busy surgical career, Dr Souéid’s is committed to further training of next generation of plastic surgeons and doctors. He lectures at the ‘Career in Surgery conference at the Royal Society of Medicine in London’ as an invited lecturer. He is also a co-establisher of the first course in the United Kingdom on the advanced and highly specialised technique of sentinel node biopsies for skin cancer. Dr Soueid has supervised intercalated BSc project students at UCL, mainly in the research area of tissue engineering. This world-class research was conducted at one the Europe’s eminent tissue engineering centres. He has more than 30 publications that appeared in peer reviewed journals such as the Journal of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery, the Plastic Reconstructive Surgery Journal and the European Journal of Plastic Surgery. He also presented in over 30 national and international meetings. Also committed to the improvement of health care and patient pathways and outcomes, Dr Souéid has completed more than 20 audits in clinical governance that directly and positively impacted patient care.

AcademicResearch

Dr Souéid has been awarded an MSc in Surgical Science from University College London. As part of the MSc I studied modules in “Cancer Biology” and “Cancer and the environment”. The bulk of the MSc was a laboratory-based project. He researched the contraction capability of smooth muscle cells derived from piglets and human subjects and the effect of pathology, drugs or tension of their contraction ability.
