We are excited to be a resource for students, residents, and trainees who are interested in global surgery. We believe that health is a human right and that surgical care is a part of that right. Students are interested in joining the effort and have a lot to contribute to this field, but have not yet had the opportunity. We hope that you can get involved and learn more about how surgery fits into the world of global health.
