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! 


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.

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.

25-28th MAR

"The doctor as a humanist" online symposium

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.

We hope everyone interested can take place. All symposium registrations will be donated to the fight against the COVID-19.


Suture Workshops


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.

For more information, you can keep updated in our social media.
