The OHSU Department of Surgery does not currently give global surgery certificates. However our training program with rural opportunities and resident research encourages residents with a broader global interest. Residents accepted for a research year are eligible to participate in medical outreach travel to the country of Haiti where we have long-standing relationships. Research residents have pursued their MPH in South Africa and returned to focus on practices in rural surgery. Our residents have also participated with the Global Alliance and for one month activities in Tanzania. All activities are self-funded with scholarships available. Looking forward, the department is currently developing potential surgical connections with SE Asia.
