Great closing of a successful first course on Global Surgery at the Technical University Munich. We thank Dr. Kee Park and our students who participated in this first trial. We are immensely grateful and honoured!
This course is the first of its kind at Technical University Munich and one of the first global surgery courses to be offered in Germany. The field of global surgery is truly in its infancy.
The aim of this course will be to provide background information and skills that will help students become leaders in the field of global surgery or to at least consider surgically related conditions when developing public health interventions.
The development of course material is led by Dr. med. P. Niclas Broer, Dr. med. Paul Heidekrueger and Dr. phil. Sabrina Juran, founders of the German Global Surgery Alliance (GGSA) and in close collaboration with Dr. med. John Meara’s team at Harvard Medical School’s Program in Global Surgery and Social Change (PGSSC). Further support will be provided by InciSioN (the International Student Surgical Network).
8 days of surgery, over 100 surgeries were performed: Dr. Niclas Broer and Dr. Paul Heidekrüger joined again the team of Dr. Heinz Schoeneich (Director Section Munich, INTERPLAST Germany).
