Member resources

On these pages we strive to provide materials to help you spread the word about GICS and to keep up with activities between our meetings.


Become a member of GICS

GICS wants to engage providers of surgical care throughout the world, and we welcome you to join our efforts.  We try to gather members every 1-2 years, but the bulk of our work is accomplished through the various committees and working groups between our meetings.  Annual membership dues are used to defray costs and to help subsidize travel for low-income members to attend our meetings.  Dues vary by where you work:

  • High-income countries:  $100
  • Middle-income countries:  $50
  • Low-income countries:  $25
  • Trainees:  $25
  • Nurses $10

Email us at if you wish to join GICS.

Attend our online research webinars

Every month, GICS holds an online Research Webinar. The purpose of the webinar is to allow researchers (of any level of career development and research experience) to discuss a research project idea they have or to present on data they have already collected and receive feedback from a group of expert scientists. Please email Dr. Emily Smith for more information or to participate.
