This five-day course looks at the provision of surgical services at a global level, encompassing all related specialties including obstetrics, gynaecology and anaesthesia/critical care.
10-14 September 2018
This brand new course has been developed by a partnership of four departments: the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences, The Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences, the Nuffield Department of Women’s and Reproductive Health and the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences. It is run by the Oxford University Global Surgery Group.
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).
