Green Templeton College
Traditionally surgery has been taught as a technical and practical specialty; however this short course takes a completely different approach and looks at the provision of surgical services at a global level. The term 'Global Surgery' in this course encompasses all related specialties including obstetrics, gynaecology and anaesthesia/critical care.
This five-day course, run by Oxford University Global Surgery Group, is suitable for those in all disciplines interested in global surgery. The course comprises presentations, discussions and seminars looking at major topics in global surgery such as burden of disease, manpower issues, training, partnership, supplies, service management, research needs, advocacy and ethics, and resource allocation. There will also be a half-day session on practical preparation for surgery in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs).
