UBC Master of Global Surgical Care (MGSC) & Graduate Certificate in Global Surgical Care (GCGSC)

Applications are now open!  The deadline is Friday, June 19th, 2020.

Our graduate programs are innovative, online programs focused on the global burden of unmet surgical care. Learners will build on their health-care related disciplines to gain the fundamental knowledge, critical thinking tools and practical skills needed to lead the way to improved access to care by addressing the gap that exists between surgical need and the equitable provision of safe surgical care in low resource settings. The MGSC includes the option to complete a specialized stream in Canadian Low Resource Settings, focusing on the unique issues affecting surgical care in rural and remote low resource settings here in Canada. By expanding students’ knowledge of conditions, and global circumstances, that shape surgical care globally, our graduates will become leaders in this emerging academic discipline and equipped to play an integral part in provision of global surgical care in low resource settings.
