Global Surgery Research Positions at the PGSSC

The Program in Global Surgery and Social Change (PGSSC) at Harvard Medical School is dedicated to addressing the burden of surgical disease across the globe through a combination of surgical training, research, and advocacy efforts that focus on the needs of low- and middle-income countries. Current efforts include building surgical and research capacity with our international collaborators in Haiti, Sub-Saharan Africa, India, the Middle East, and several countries in South America. We work closely with Partners in Health and local sister organizations to study and address global surgery needs.

Within this program, medical students work as research associates for a period of one year to support the mission of the Program in Global Surgery and Social Change. Research associates will work alongside faculty, surgical residents, and fellows conducting global surgery research, advocacy, and capacity-building projects. Individuals in this position are afforded the opportunity to work independently on research projects, gain a background in global health and surgery as well as public health, and travel internationally to support the ongoing projects of the Program in Global Surgery and Social Change.
