Bethune Round Table 2017- Ottawa

Bethune Round Table 2017- Ottawa

The BRT 2017 is hosted by the University of Ottawa Department of Surgery.  This unique international multidisciplinary conference is held each year in Canada.  The conference focuses on surgical, obstetrical and anaesthesia related issues in low- and middle-income countries.

Below is your invitation from the planning committee.   See you there!


Dear Global Health partners,

On behalf of the organizing committee at the University of Ottawa, I would like to invite everyone to Ottawa for the Bethune Roundtable Conference on Global Surgery June 1-3, 2017. Abstract submissions are now open, with a deadline of Monday February 6, 2017. For those participants from Low and Middle income countries who would like to be considered for sponsored positions, the abstract deadline is Monday December 19th, 2016.

Further information on BRT2017 can be found on the attached poster, and at 2017

Please help us forward to anyone involved in global surgery in your university/region, and to post the poster up to inform people of the event. I have tried to include the office of global surgery in each surgical training center to pass to other global surgery groups in your area (Anesthesia, obgyn etc). otherwise, I have included the Office of global health (please let me know if there is a global surgery office I am missing).

Hope to see many of you in Ottawa to continue the dialogue on how to make safe accessible surgery for all.
