Center for Global Surgery
The Center for Global Surgery is a network of providers and professionals at the University of Utah who envision a world where safe, effective, and affordable surgical and anesthetic care is accessible to all people.
Embedded within the School of Medicine's Department of Surgery, the Center positions surgical faculty, residents, and medical students to participate more closely in solving the most vexing problems in global health.
The mission of the Center for Global Surgery is threefold:
- Address barriers of access to essential surgical care through innovation, research, and advocacy
- Train the next generation of global healthcare leaders
- Participate in bi-directional partnerships that help healthcare providers identify and address the specific surgical care needs of their nation and people.
