Global Surgery Symposium and Workshops


In a world that is moving closer together, surgical care needs to be seen in the global picture. On the one hand a surgeon's knowledge and clinical experience might be challenged in the absence of a high-tech-infrastructure and on the other hand it is necessary to share the existing expertise – which is rarely at hand – with those interested in working under such conditions, herewith raising a voice for good surgical care at a worldwide scale.

This conference is geared at those willing to dedicate themselves to providing medical care in resource-poor settings and should serve as a lively exchange platform within the various disciplines related to surgery and the involved individuals. Lectures from the field of global surgery, operative medicine in resource-poor regions, current initiatives as well as an interdisciplinary exchange are rounded off by a culinary as well as ethnomusicological excursus.

Workshops will be offered on:

  • External fixation
  • Plastering techniques
  • Intestinal anastomoses
  • Obstetrics
  • Resuscitation

Symposium and Workshops will be held November 10-12, 2017 in Vienna, Austria.
