The Travelling Surgical Society (TSS) of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is a group of surgeons from the United Kingdom which travels to hospitals and surgical departments all around the world.
These are academic and clinical meetings and the purpose is to encourage educational and surgical exchanges. As quoted on the home page of their website:

Tomorrow, the TSS will attend a full day academic meeting at UHN as part of this year’s Toronto tour:
