********************

The RSM Global health programme in association with GASOC is proud to launch the very first global surgery summer school.

This two days condensed course is targeted at UK and international trainees and students. It will provide a fantastic platform to network with senior colleagues and enthusiastic peers.

The summer school was conceived to equip trainees with skills, academic insights and networking opportunities in global surgical work. Bringing together international perspectives, we put surgery, obstetrics and anaesthesia in context to better understand their ability to leverage the welfare of communities and the economic productivity of nations.

Together, we aim to develop a ‘Network Document’ as a statement on the importance and potential benefits of a global career in surgery, anaesthesia or obstetrics, as well as the need to support such careers.
