About us

The Surgical Foundation is a charity which exists to improve outcomes for patients. We achieve this through education and training for surgeons from low and middle income countries. From 2012-17 we trained 141 trainers, 260 surgical trainees and 382 theatre nurses, across 42 courses in sub-Saharan Africa. We have also awarded 70 bursaries since 2008. Find our more about us

International Bursaries

Recipients receive access to the ASGBI’s International Surgical Congress and two days visiting a UK hospital. Bursaries provide opportunities to join an international network of surgeons and learn ways to improve patient outcomes. Specialist General Surgery trainees from poorly resourced countries may apply. Find out more
