The Penn Global Surgery Group is a dynamic group of students, residents, and faculty interested in the exciting field of global surgery. We host lectures and organize a bi-annual symposium featuring leaders in global surgical development. We are also actively engaged in research and publish a quarterly with news and narratives about surgery from across the world.

We are always looking for new opportunities and collaborations, so if you'd like to get involved, please contact us!

Upcoming Event: Dr. Rudolf Roth, MD

May 31st, 1:00pm: Dr. Rudolf Roth, MD, Director of Clinical Dermatology at Penn Medicine Radnor, will share lessons from his annual visits to Guatemala and Haiti, where he develops relationships with dermatology departments with a focus on dermatologic surgery. He will discuss the ideas behind how helping in another country can actually hurt both patients and the institutions there, how to do less harm in this way, and the logistics involved in leading a team for either a medical or surgical experience abroad. New Delhi lunch will be provided.
