Welcome!

PGSG 2021 Spring Symposium - "Women in Global Surgery" 

The Penn Global Surgery Group is hosting our Penn Global Surgery Symposium virtually on Saturday, 4/17/21 (11am-1pm EST).

The theme is “Women in Global Surgery." We are extremely fortunate to have Dr. Kathleen Casey (CMO at Physicians for Peace) as our keynote speaker. After, we will divide into breakout rooms led by Penn faculty in various specialties of global surgery. In breakout sessions, students will have the opportunity to ask questions about careers in global surgery to mentors in the field. We're very grateful for all our physicians for sharing their expertise with us.
