5 billion people around the world do not have access to basic surgical care. Traditional surgical missions will not solve this problem. 2.2 million trained surgeons will. That is why our mission is training these surgeons and developing training materials for the places in the world that need it most; saving lives and leading to lasting solutions.
Surgical Teaching & Training
We are dedicated to teaching surgical skills that will improve health outcomes and increase access to surgical education. This is how we save lives and create a lasting impact.
Training Local Surgeons
Training stands at the centre of the GSA approach to global surgery. Our surgeons and tropical medicine doctors know from experience that many doctors in LMICs lack opportunities to further develop their surgical skills.
Teaching about Global Surgery
If the goal is for 5 billion more people to have safe, affordable access to surgical care, we need all the help we can get.
Developing open source materials
In order to practice medicine, first you need to study it. Medical students around the world do not have equal access to training opportunities, materials, and methods, and we need to close that gap.

We use these 5 pillars to promote sustainable efforts in global surgery to help close the gap in surgical care in LMICs.
