Rural Surgery Program


Helping the Rural Surgery Initiative is helping the underserved. To donate more, please change the appropriate quantity to the desired amount to give.  Thank you for your generous gift.



Support this new and innovative PGH initiative to improve Global Access to Surgical Expertise in outlying underserved Rural Areas.   PGH sends Residents and Consultants to outlying Hospitals to evaluate and perform surgical services.   This helps our trainees achieve their required number of cases to qualify for their Specialty but at the same time provide services that are otherwise available only if patients come to PGH.  With the UPMASA Medical Missions suspended because of the Pandemic, UPMASA has adopted to help finance this initiative as a surrogate to our yearly Medical Missions.  Help UPMASA spread the edge of UPCM and PGH Medicine.  Support it now.
