National Surgery Interest Groups

Global Surgery Student Alliance

The Global Surgery Student Alliance (GSSA) is the national student-run global surgery working group for the U.S. affiliated with the International Student Surgical Network. By exposing students to the global surgery early on, GSSA hopes to help them build their surgical careers with global surgery in mind. Ultimately, many students are willing and able to make significant contributions to global surgery, and GSSA aims to be a resource that facilitates those efforts.

Vision: Sustainable and accessible surgical, obstetric, and anesthesia care worldwide.
Mission: To educate, inspire, and unite students through engagement and mentorship in global surgery, including anesthesia and obstetrics/gynecology.
