Abstract

There is a significant amount of interest among general surgery residency training programs in North America to have a rotation in an underserved part of the world. Usually, these global surgery rotations for the general surgery residents have been extended in duration to allow for emersion and continuity. There is similar interest among a few of the pediatric surgery training programs to initiate short, one month rotations in the global surgery arena as part of the two year pediatric surgery residency training.
