About the Boston Global Surgery Symposium
The conference will include a keynote by Dr. John Meara, Chair of the Lancet Commission on Global Surgery. We will then have several panel sessions including: crisis and humanitarian aid, education and capacity-building, global surgery innovation, subspecialty global surgery, and global surgery research. The speakers are leaders in the field of global surgery and come from many surgical specialties, including: neuro, thoracic, trauma, general, orthopedic, ENT, plastics, cardiac, OMFS, pediatric, surg onc, OB/Gyn, and anesthesia. We will also have a panel on how to have a career in global surgery run by several of the global surgery fellows in Boston.
About the Global Surgery Student Alliance
The Global Surgery Student Alliance is the national student-run global surgery working group for the U.S. Our goal is to bring more students into the field of global surgery and to unite our efforts across the U.S. We also hope to connect students to international global surgery efforts through our affiliation with InciSioN (the International Student Surgical Network). We want to provide a central resource for students in the U.S. who are interested in global surgery, including anesthesia and OB/GYN.
