ACS VA Chapter Humanitarian and Global Surgery Committee Survey
The purpose of the Humanitarian and Global Surgery Committee initially is to account for all global surgery activities from surgeons, surgical providers, and surgical trainees within the state of Virginia with the aim to build a database that can serve for networking and resources for collaboration.
Once we have determined who the main stakeholders in the Commonwealth of Virginia, the committee will work to define and provide structure and guidelines for competency-based activities in global surgery.
Additionally, we the committee will study the disparities in the state of Virginia to potentially apply lessons learned abroad to improve access to surgical care.
