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!
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.

Doctor as a Humanist online course and symposium
In April 2019, Miriam Cazador and Miranda Rico, members of the AQG, attended and presented a survey they made about the importance of humanities on the medicine degree.
It was a symposium in Moscow addressed to health profesionals and students with special interest in medical humanities. They were three days full of interesting conferences!

Asepsia and antisepsia workshop
The first time a medical student goes to a surgical theatre can be scary, mainly because we usually don't know exactly how to behave or move inside it.
To change that, the association offers you a 2 hour workshop to teach students the importance of asepsia and antisepsia and all the basic steps to follow before and during a surgery.
We hope to see you all there!
The Medical Humanities
We are pleased to announce that on the 23th of January, we are expecting to hear the distinguished Mr. Jonathan McFarland speak at the conference entitled "The Medical Humanities: The What, The Why and The How".
We will post more information soon!
