About the Program

Welcome to the VCU Program for Global Surgery

At VCU, as a public institution, we offer crucial regional support for patients and facilities regardless of their needs or finances.

We also bring the same work ethic and compassion to work with institutions around the world to improve the care for patients in many hard-to-believe scenarios every day. For several decades, our surgeons have worked across numerous countries to consult, teach, support the development of other surgeons, trainees, students to deliver the best care possible in their settings. 

We now bring these experiences under one roof—the Program for Global Surgery—so that faculty, staff, trainees, students and the public can see, share and support the impact we can have around the world.

Explore.  Engage.  Learn.  Contribute. 

Whether you are a student who wants to learn about how to have an impact on the world or a VCU supporter interested in engaging in the legacy we are creating around the globe, come join us.
