GSSA Webinar Series

Our Education Team has spearheaded a new effort to make accessible opportunities for students and trainees to learn more about specific aspects of global surgery directly from the experts! These webinars are meant to be interactive, where people can submit questions in advance and even during the webinar to dive deeper into each topic with the speakers. However, since we know not everyone can make it, we have recorded each webinar and will continue to do so, so you can learn from these amazing global surgery faculty and researchers anytime! Please reach out to us at globalsurgerystudents@gmail.com if you have any questions.
