CSPH’s Academic Global Surgery Forum (AGSF) provides a platform for research presentation, scholarly exchange, and literature review on topical issues in global health as it relates to surgery.
Speakers, from outside and within the CSPH/BWH/Harvard communities, are selected on the basis of their outstanding work and involvement in global health research initiatives, with a particular focus on delivering surgical care in resource poor settings. Past topics have addressed innovative research in wound care, national surgical delivery capacity, and investigations in surgical epidemiology, among other topics that can be reviewed at the archive link below. The monthly forum is attended by faculty, fellows, residents, medical students, and other staff interested in contributing to an intellectual community in global surgery. The AGSF meets on the first Tuesday of every month from 6:30 - 8:00 PM (unless otherwise indicated) in Homans Library at BWH.
