Here's what our 2018 cohort had to say about the course:
FANTASTIC! So eye opening and thought provoking and genuinely a life/career changing event.
- L. Clifton
I found the mixture of delegates from 23 countries, and both HICs and LMICs, This was something often no seen in other global surgery conferences I have been to, and it is/has been exceptionally valuable.
- Melissa Wood, General Surgery Resident, University of Saskatchewan, Canada. MSc Surgical Science and Practice Candidate
It was well-organised and the way in which was ran gave plenty opportunities to dissect issues, disturb norms and purposefully discuss with input from experiences rich and diverse.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the course. It has opened my eyes to endless possibilities within global surgery and beyond.
- Oreoluwa Bajomo, CTI Surgery
This course was highly relevant, not only on academic & intellectual levels, but emotional as well. The curiosity, wisdom, and thoughtful critiques in the room will be long felt. Thank you!
- Sadie Bazur-Leidy, MPH. Program Administrator, American College of Surgeons
Loved it! I haven't felt this excited about my role/career in surgery for ages!
