Office of Global Surgery

The Office of Global Surgery helps develop health care systems in communities that are under-serviced in Alberta and around the world.

We foster global partnerships to assist in developing healthcare systems, surgical access and care, and academic initiatives.

Leadership in Global Surgery

In partnership with the Canadian Network for International Surgery (CNIS), the University of Alberta Office of Global Surgery (OGS) is hosting an in-person session during this year’s Bethune Roundtable Conference. The Bethune Round Table (BRT) is an annual interdisciplinary meeting dedicated to tackling the challenges of delivering accessible, high-quality surgical care to marginalized patients in low-resource settings.
