The Surgicon Project
A Non-profit, Professional Project for Internationally Equalized Surgical Skills
The human anatomy is the same regardless of country, culture, religion, wealth or poverty. Therefore the surgical profession and quality should be the same world wide, as a part of normal Human Rights.
Surgicon is a charity organization depending on financial contributions.

“Surgicon, I believe, is the only world-wide “clearing house” for the latest ideas, concepts, and developments in the critical theatre of how educators internationally are facing the challenge of educating the next generation of surgeons in an efficient, but more importantly, effective manner. In this age of rising costs and diminishing opportunities for trainee experience, we no longer can employ the traditional apprenticeship model of the past century – it is too inefficient, and lacks uniformity and assurance of the proficiency of those entering surgical practice and caring for patients.
It should continue to serve as the most effective and visible forum for the exchange of surgical training principles available today. It is simply not possible for individual organizations, societies, or countries to address all of the issues or explore all of the avenues necessary to identify the resources and tools necessary to prepare future surgeons.”

“Healthcare education is undergoing a revolution through the use of simulation technologies – providing an opportunity to accurately assess a healthcare worker’s (doctor, nurse, technician, etc) performance accurately and quantitatively. Evidence shows that this training with simulation not only improves performance, but improves patient safety and healthcare quality.
Dr. Margareta Berg, MD of Gothenburg Sweden has been working for years to bring the medical education community together through an annual conference and organization called Surgicon. I wanted to bring this important work to your attention, and ask for your attention and support. She will be meeting with important key persons in the immediate future, to discuss the importance of using simulation and bring together the healthcare community in a unified approach to medical education, rather than every country and hospital wasting resources and competing because everyone is developing their own training programs. The long term benefits would be significant, allowing medical training curricula to be available globally, including to developing countries.”
