Call for Abstracts

The Call for Abstracts is now CLOSED for the 2021 Bethune Round Table. If you have not received a reply yet but did submit an abstract, please contact gabriela.sanchez@muhc.mcgill.ca.

The Bethune Round Table is a multidisciplinary meeting that aims to address the challenges and strategies of providing accessible, high-quality surgical care to vulnerable populations around the world. This conference encourages dialogue on global surgery from perspectives across diverse disciplines, including surgery, anesthesia, obstetrics, gynecology, as well as nursing and allied health. This year’s conference will see representation from Canada and our partner institutions in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas.

The theme of the 21st Bethune Round Table will be: Strengthening Health Infrastructures in Under-Resourced Communities. We wish to highlight the research and stories about strength, resilience, and promotion of culture that are critical to improving access to safe and equitable surgical services. The 2021 Bethune will feature research that recognizes cultural differences and the impacts of racism. We want to celebrate and highlight initiatives that improve the survival, dignity and health of under-resourced communities the world over through better surgical care.

This event is organized by the Centre for Global Surgery at the McGill University Health Centre. The 2021 Bethune Round Table will take place virtually from May 28 – 30, 2021.
