Global Surgery Research Seminar

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

The Research Seminar will be held the second Tuesday of each month, from 9:00 a.m. EST to 10:00 a.m EST.

 

For each Research Seminar session, we identify a common theme and similar methods. Each speaker will present for 20-25 minutes, followed by a 30 minute open discussion on the topic. All are welcome; specific details and registration links for sessions are available for each individual session.
