Over the next couple of months we will be releasing some content that focuses more generally on global health and global surgery at large. To begin an exciting series of interviews with some fantastic individuals, we have an podcast episode with Dr Edward Fitzgerald, a trained surgeon, current healthcare consultant and researcher in Global Surgery. We also have a short video to kickstart the month from the Global Surgery Collaborative, an international collaboration of surgical researchers that any clinician can join.
'GlobalSurg is an international collaboration of surgical researchers that any clinician can join and contribute. The collaboration is fostering regional, national and international surgical networks, with over 3000 clinicians in more than 60 countries. Our projects aim to give frontline surgeons the opportunity to participate in major high-quality projects that do not require extra resources or funding. Every collaborator is a Pubmed citable co-author on the final journal publications. The projects are designed to ensure they are easy for local surgeons to execute, and help build local research capacity to improve patient care globally.'
