We have moved our weekly Thursday morning project updates online to Microsoft Teams, where Oxford University Global Surgery Group (OUGSG) members share about current global surgery training and research projects, and ideas for collaboration.

Seminar taking place with members of the Oxford University Global Surgery Group

Normally these are held in the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences (NDS) Seminar Room, Level 6, John Radcliffe Hospital, and we usually go for coffee in George Pickering Education Centre (Level 3) afterwards. However we have transferred these online since we have been working remotely. 

The OUGSG weekly seminars take place every Thursday from 08:30 to 09:00.

To join the mailing list for these, please email globalsurgery@nds.ox.ac.uk. If you'd like to present a current/potential project, please contact Sarah Davidson
