The conference is hosted annually by the Global Surgery Student Alliance and brings together 70+ medical school chapters and over 400-500 student leaders nationwide.

Attendees will learn from experts, hear about new research and innovations, experience the latest technology in the exhibit hall, network at the Friday Launch Party in the Big House Stadium, gain professional skills through workshops, and support charity funds at the Global Surgery Black Tie Gala. The conference aims to demystify and bridge the gap between surgery departments (such as UM’s #1 nationally ranked Department of Surgery Residency Program) and students interested in surgery, global health, economics, technology, education, and more.
