Global Surgery Course

From Monday 10 September 2018
To Friday 14 September 2018

Traditionally surgery has been taught as a technical and practical specialty. This short course takes a completely different approach and looks at the provision of surgical services at a global level. The term 'Global Surgery' in this course encompasses all related specialties including obstetrics, gynaecology and anaesthesia/critical care.

This five-day course, run by Oxford University Global Surgery Group, is suitable for those interested in global surgery in all disciplines. The first four days will comprise presentations, discussions and seminars looking at major topics in global surgery such as burden of disease, manpower issues, training, partnership, supplies, service management and research needs. There will also be a half-day session on practical preparation for surgery in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs).

The final day will involve attendance at a conference on global surgery held in Oxford at the iconic Blavatnik School of Government and run by the Global Anaesthesia, Surgery & Obstetric Collaboration (GASOC).

Application deadline: 30 April
