Our approach centers around the pivotal role of training in empowering surgeons and healthcare professionals across low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). We understand the pressing need for enhanced surgical skills development and have departed from the traditional model of surgical missions to make a profound impact on a larger scale. Through our commitment to training local surgeons, integrating Global Surgery education within the Dutch medical education system, and creating open-source digital learning materials, GSA is revolutionizing the way surgical care is delivered globally.
Please note that access to the courses is limited to participants.

Three ways of training
Training local surgeons
Our primary goal is to empower local surgeons by providing them with comprehensive training programs. By equipping them with the necessary knowledge and skills, we aim to strengthen surgical capacity around the world and improve healthcare outcomes for communities in need. Through close collaboration and mentorship, we foster an environment of continuous learning and professional growth.
Teaching about global surgery
We are dedicated to integrating global surgery education within the Dutch medical education system. By raising awareness and promoting a deeper understanding of the unique challenges and opportunities in global surgical care, we aim to inspire the next generation of medical professionals to engage in this important field.
Developing open source materials
In our commitment to accessible and inclusive education, we have developed open-source digital learning materials. These resources serve as valuable references, enabling medical practitioners worldwide to access up-to-date information and expand their knowledge base in Global Surgery. By leveraging technology, we are breaking down geographical barriers and ensuring that knowledge is freely available to those who seek it.
