UCL Division of Surgery and Interventional Science


Global Health

We want to promote a better understanding of international healthcare issues through our growing Global Health Programme.

Our aim is to connect with patients, communities and healthcare professionals across the world, to better understand healthcare needs beyond our daily personal lives. We hope to contribute to health improvements through an active partnership with local experts and create opportunities for research, training and education.

Perioperative Medicine at UCL has partnered with colleagues in Sri Lanka, the Network for Improving Critical Care Systems and Training (NICST), to produce The Care Quality Improvement Network (CQIN).  This multidisciplinary team collecting, curating and using real-time local data to ask important health questions in low and middle-income countries provides an exciting opportunity for bi-directional learning. Local data drives projects in line with UCL Global Health strategy and together with our overseas partners and experts in the field delivers a coherent programme and a unique opportunity for personal development.
