Centre for Global Surgery-McGill University Health Centre
The Centre for Global Surgery at the McGill University Health Centre (CGS-MUHC) was founded in 2011 by two trauma surgeons who recognized the global burden of surgical disease. Since then, the CGS-MUHC has grown into a multidisciplinary team working to augment injury and surgical capacity in resource limited settings. The CGS-MUHC program is based on 4 main pillars: research, education, career development, and disaster response. As a leading academic institution in the field of injury, the Centre has been working with healthcare leadership across the globe to identify targeted interventions to reduce surgical related morbidity and mortality. To date, the CGS-MUHC has established partnerships with hospitals, institutions and leadership in Sub-Saharan Africa, South America, Asia and Europe.
