Global Surgical Frontiers Conference
The Royal College of Surgeons hosts an annual conference focused on international surgery. It aims to engage surgeons at all stages of their careers.
Global Surgical Frontiers provides the opportunity for all attendees to network with, and learn from, other members of the surgical community, both within and across specialties, who have an interest in international surgery.
Each year the conference has focused on a different facet of global surgery. Previous years have been themed:
- opportunities in surgery overseas
- global surgery, anaesthesia and obstetrics: shifting paradigms and challenging generations
- The Lancet Commission - one year on
- surgical care of the young
The Global Surgical Frontiers conference is open to surgeons at all stages of their careers, members of the surgical team, NGOs, charities, and members of the public with an interest in public health and the development of surgical care in LMICs. Those involved with GSF are completely passionate about global surgery and have a great range of experience. The conference aims to stimulate further interest and discussion around global surgery, particularly in Low and Low Middle Income Countries.
For more information about this year's conference, the programme and how to get tickets can be found on our events calendar.
