Global Surgery Research Seminar

This Global Surgery Research Seminar is a public seminar series to share methods and results across a broader surgery research community. Over the course of ten seminars, our goal is to strengthen global surgery general knowledge and specific skills by learning from the experience of the seminar speakers.

Each Research Seminar will examine a common theme and common methods. Each speaker will present for 20-25 minutes, followed by a 30 minute open discussion on the topic. All are welcome to attend and participate; specific details and registration links for sessions are available for each Research Seminar.

If you are unable to make a given Research Seminar, recorded videos will be uploaded to this site and can be accessed via the links below.
