Example text

The four cardinal areas for Academic Global Surgery are the same as for all other academic surgical fields and include: 1. Education (training foreign or domestic surgeons) 2. Research (contributing to clinical, education or basic science) 3. Advocacy (championing international surgical care through policy change, promoting activities of global surgeons within academia or other methods) 4. Development (establishing clinical programs, surgical systems or career pathways in the field) An individual surgeon in this era of newfound appreciation for AGS may follow a clinical or academic pathway in AGS.

Similarly, the elective (non-urgent) nature of this approach allows flexibility in patient scheduling. This is important in order to achieve high volumes, contain costs, and improve technical quality. The resultant building of technical, and managerial capacity, strengthens the health system and provides a foundation for sustainability of global surgical programs. Other aspects of the sustainability of a global surgical program, include costeffectiveness and access. These components require a close and strong working relationship with the local health system including the Ministry of Health.

While this might be true during the period of formal training in residency, incorporating AGS early in your faculty career is equivalent to dedicating your early career to launching a basic science lab and should not be seen as a negative. Ultimately, your options or ability to pursue a career in AGS may be restricted by the position of your partners and your ability to gain acceptance and support for this pursuit. Considering all of the foregoing factors early on will allow you to adjust for them and achieve your goal of pursuing a career in AGS.
