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 eager to learn more about surgery and be inspired by it!
Tribute to the
The past 2nd of March we conducted a debriefing session about the I Gimbernat Surgical Symposium - SCALPEL in order to discuss the aspects of the symposium succeed and which ones need improvement for the next editions.
We also believe in the plurality of the association for its well functioning, therefore, we replaced the organization’s committee by creating new positions, such as the vice-president, secretary and treasury assistants. These new roles will endorse the already stablished and guarantee a better management of the association.
Moreover, we had the honor to bid fareweel to the 2018-2020 committee in order to make way for the new generations. However, we could not say goodbye without first thanking our fellows for their great work they have done during these past years.
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!
Catalan Surgical Society annual congress 2019
A few months ago, the Catalan Society of Surgery invited us to present a clinical case of a Spiegel's Hernia at the congress held on October 17 and 18 in Barcelona.
It has been an amazing experience because it has allowed us to know more about this pathology and have the opportunity to present it in a congress.

We hope everyone interested can take place.
Symposium registrations are free and there is the posibility of donating money to fight against the COVID-19.
Due to COVID-19, "The Doctor as a Humanist Symposium" organized from the 25 to the 28th of March in Mexico will be now online.
As every year, on May we have the two-session suture workshops.
Medical students can learn the basic techniques of knotting and suturing with surgical residents and surgeons.
However, this year, because of the uncertainty created by the COVID-19 we are not sure if it is going to be posible to organize any activity on this third trimester.
