Many Changes Underway!
At the conclusion of Pennsic 44 (Aug 10, 2015), the Chirurgeonate ceased to exist as an official office of the SCA. In true Chirurgeon Spirit, we continue to serve the Popluace as an independant Guild. Please visit for information on the new Guild. Chirurgeons' Point will continue to provide educational information pertaining to providing first aid in the SCA.
