Educate Tomorrow’s International Surgical Care Leaders

Help us expand the world’s only international online graduate surgical care program. Have a profound impact on increasing the number of skilled and knowledgeable surgeons working in disadvantaged regions of the world.

In order to build on the successes of our courses, the Branch developed a Graduate Certificate in Global Surgical Care that launched in September 2015 and the Master of Global Surgical Care, the only one of its kind in the world, which launched in September 2018. Many of our SURG course alumni and others are now pursuing full- or part-time careers in international surgical care.

Surgeons and residents have little time to spare, so the academic training provided is in a format – primarily online, with a practicum component in the field – that enables students to continue serving their community while also receiving valuable training that enhances their ability to bring their practice and skill set to low-resource settings.

Your donation provides critical support to continue and grow the only programs of their kind seeking to address the global need for surgical care in vulnerable and under served communities of the world.

MGSC Bursary Award Fund

The Master of Global Surgical Care’s bursary award program for international learners will play a key role in engaging a cohort of students who otherwise would not be able to enroll in graduate studies. This award will allow surgeons and trainees from low-income countries to take the online Master’s program, ultimately equipping them to address the growing need of surgical care for those who need it the most.

A portion of the paid tuition fees are allocated to this award each year. However, it is not enough. As such, we are actively seeking to raise funds for the bursary award program. Your support will create new opportunities for surgical training to enhance care for patients in need around the world.

Support Our Partnership with Reconstructing Women International

Support continued expansion of our partnership with Reconstructing Women International and our shared vision of realizing surgical care access across the globe. Help local medical facilities and international women plastic surgeons collaborate to deliver treatment together. Have a profound impact on women suffering from injuries and trauma often inflicted on them as a result of their ethnic background, social traditions, or environmental conditions.

Reconstructing Women International is a charity program supported by female plastic surgeons whose goal is to help women suffering from disfiguring or socially excluding injuries and trauma, with the goal of enabling such women to continue on to lead happy and prosperous lives despite their injuries and trauma they have suffered in the past.

We are pleased to be partnering with the Reconstructing Women International Organization through the continued dedication of our advisory committee member Dr. Nancy VanLaeken, who has for the past two years held fundraisers to help support work in India.
