Approximately 80 students from the three medical schools of the country came together to explore their passion for Global Surgery.
They were lucky to have Professor Russell Gruen, a commissioner of the Lancet Commission on Global Surgery, as a speaker.
Professor Gruen shared invaluable insights on how Global Surgery is an emerging concern and how Singaporeans medical students have a role to play in the Asian region.
