The Gimbernat Surgical Association Committee has the honor of welcoming you to our page and invite you to discover the story of our association!

Our association was established in 2011 by a group of fourth grade medical students of the bachelor's degree in medicine Universitat Pompeu Fabra and Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona tutored by our honorary president Professor Manuel Pera.

We are a group of medicine students who eager to learn more about surgery and be inspired by it!

SCALPEL. I Gimbernat Surgical Symposium 2020

On the past 24th of February we held our first Surgical Symposium for medical students. 

We had the pleasure to listen to the conferences of Dr. Salvador Navarro and Dr. Julio Mayol. 

Also, medical students from all of the catalan faculties could do dinamic workshops. They could learn about management of a politrauma, plastic surgery, cardiac surgery, traumatology, general surgery, oftalmology, basic suture techniques and do a medical escape room.

Moreover, we have created a short videoclip about our first surgical symposium - SCALPEL where you will be able to find a brief review of all the workshops we offered and make a nice thowback.

We hope you enjoy it!
