PSA-GSA Grants

General Surgeons Australia (GSA) is extremely supportive of initiatives that encourage our Trainees and IMG’s to become involved in regional and rural surgical careers. This is a significant workforce issue for General Surgery and one of the strategic imperatives of GSA.

To support Trainees and IMGs investigating Rural Surgery as a career option, we are offering several Provincial Surgeons of Australia (PSA) 2017 Annual Scientific Conference (ASC) Registration Grants, each valued at up to $770 Inc. GST.
