Partner With Us

Our partnerships are the foundation and driving force of our collaborations. Previously, partners have set up programs with us in which our institutions collaborate to develop educational, clinical, and research projects together. These programs are often long-term, meaning that we work with our partners over many years to learn and exchange ideas. Reach out to partner with our global surgery team.

Join our work by giving to the Michigan Center for Global Surgery. Donations have been used in the past to send faculty and trainees to the locations of our partner institutions. The programs established by Michigan Medicine and our partners have also been assisted by donations. The expanding number of projects and programs supported by the Michigan Center for Global Surgery will continue to depend on your much appreciated gifts. Your contribution will make a global impact.
