About this Event

The purpose of the Seminar is to highlight Global Surgery at McMaster to an audience of local faculty and postgraduate trainees. This year on the 50th anniversary of the Medical School, we are featuring as a keynote speaker a member of the first graduating class, Dr. Stephen Foster. Dr. Foster has spent his surgical career in Angola, and has mentored many McMaster residents during their international electives. We anticipate that a number of the visiting alumni will be especially interested in learning about McMaster’s involvement in global surgery.
