Oxford Global Surgery Course
OXFORD GLOBAL SURGERY COURSE
We have run the annual Oxford Global Surgery Course since 2018 for healthcare professionals interested in global surgery, anaesthesia and obstetrics. Sadly our September 2020 course has been postponed due to the pandemic, but we will be back in 2021! The course will likely be in September 2021 (to be confirmed), once again run by Oxford University Global Surgery Group in conjunction with the Department for Continuing Education. You can find out more about the course and join the mailing list here:
Here's what our previous students 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!
