ABOUT US

CGSTA is a national global surgery organization in Canada, affiliated with the International Student Surgical Network - InciSioN. Currently, 5 billion people around the world lack access to basic surgical and anesthesia care. After the release of the Lancet  Commission on Global Surgery in 2015, there has been an increased awareness in this field and an in-depth analysis of various policies and actions taken at the highest level. In Canada, global surgery would be incomplete without mention of rural surgery and disparities in the Northern and Indigenous communities.  With a large number of trainees interested in and participating in global surgery experiences, we hope to develop stronger networks for collaboration, education and advocacy across Canada.

 

OUR MANDATE

We aim to: 

  1. To create a network of inspired, educated medical students engaged in global surgery advocacy, research, and initiatives.

  2. To provide a platform for medical students engaged in global surgery initiatives for further advocacy, research, networking, and training.
