GlobalSurg is an international network of surgical researchers, including YOU!
Our projects aim to give grass-root surgeons the opportunity to participate in high-impact collaborative outcomes studies, without the need for extra resources or funding. Our protocols are designed to ensure they are easy for local surgeons to execute. Every collaborator will be a Pubmed citable co-author on the final paper; we will aim for high impact factor surgical journals.
Our first project, GlobalSurg-1, included outcomes data on over 10,000 emergency intraperitoneal operations from 58 countries. Over 1500 researchers participated, gaining citable co-authorship.
Our 2nd international project…
"GlobalSurg-2: Determining the worldwide epidemiology of surgical site infections after abdominal surgery"
…will be running from January - July 2016! We invite you and your colleagues to participate at your local hospital. Our growing research network now includes over 3000 clinicians in more than 75 countries!
