Global Surgery Student Alliance (GSSA)
The Global Surgery Student Alliance (GSSA) is a national student-run global surgery working group for the U.S., affiliated with the International Student Surgical Network (InciSioN). GSSA also serves as the student branch of the Consortium of Academic Global Surgery (CAGS).
Students and trainees are an invaluable resource for the advancement of surgical, obstetric, trauma, and anesthesia care worldwide. By unifying efforts as students and trainees, GSSA has been able to further their initiatives and facilitate more collaboration amongst overall global surgery work, both now and in the future.
In 2017, GSSA launched their efforts with the Boston Global Surgery Symposium. Since then, they have created a national leadership team of 18 students from 12 schools, and have helped develop global surgery working groups at over 35 U.S. medical schools. GSSA's national team is currently working on projects in advocacy, education, and research to serve over 3000 students and residents across the country. By exposing students to the field early on, GSSA aims to help them build their careers with global surgery in mind.
