VCU surgeons have a long history of contributing to the care of patients on nearly every continent in the world.

According to research by The Lancet Global Health, (The World Bank, The Data Blog 2018), five billion people—two thirds of world population—lack access to safe and affordable surgical, obstetric and anesthesia care with low and middle income countries (LMICs) taking a lead.1

We encourage interested medical students, residents, and fellows to work with VCU surgeons in collaboration with VCU Health and various global surgical partnerships. Global projects undertaken by the Department of Surgery include improving and implementing high-quality surgical care in pediatric surgery, critical care surgery, plastic surgery, and surgical urology.
