Through a collaborative effort between students and health professionals from the McGill University Health Centre, we aim to provide a forum for discussion regarding the different challenges and approaches within the field of global surgery.
While global health has been the subject of much discussion and debate in the medical world, the surgical aspect of public global health is often omitted from conversation. Notably, the medical conditions treatable by surgery are also significant contributors to global disease burden and mortality.
By hosting the Global Surgery Conference, we intend to bring attention to the surgical component of global health and to facilitate discussion between practicing and future health workers regarding the issue.
- expose participants to various experiences and opportunities in global surgery
- open dialogue and encourage discussion between students and expert health professionals on the different challenges and approaches of surgical global health.
- provide participants with opportunities to network with current pioneers in global surgery and become more involved with ongoing projects
