American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Center for Surgery and Public Health

The Center for Surgery and Public Health (CSPH) seeks to advance the science of surgical care delivery by studying effectiveness, quality, equity, and value at the population level, and to develop surgeon-scientists committed to excellence in these areas. Established at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, MA, in 2005, the CSPH is a joint program of Harvard Medical School and the Harvard School of Public Health. The center’s connectivity to these rich academic environments provides essential access to interdisciplinary expertise and resources both inside and outside of surgery. In efforts to transform practice and influence public policy, CSPH works with a diverse set of collaborators, including academic institutions and non-profit and for-profit organizations, both nationally and internationally.
