Specialty Interest

Our chapter promotes the initiatives of the Canadian Global Surgery Trainee’s Alliance (CGSTA). The CGSTA is a national organization that is involved in developing stronger networks for collaboration, education, and advocacy across Canada to address the lack of access to basic surgical care globally and within Canada. The goals of our chapter include hosting exciting talks with notable healthcare professionals in the field and learning about the potential problems and solutions related to surgical care. We also work to connect current medical students with these professionals to facilitate their training experiences. For those interested in discussing articles related to global surgery, we welcome them to attend our journal club where students collaborate and work through articles to improve their knowledge and understanding. If you’re interested in learning more about global surgery and how to get involved, we hope to see you at our events!
