Orbis International – Saving Sight Worldwide
Orbis international is “a non-aligned, non-profit global development organization whose mission is to preserve and restore sight by strengthening the capacity of local partners to prevent and treat blindness.”
“For more than twenty years Seva Canada Society has been developing innovative models of sustainable eye care to address the needs of the millions of people around the world who are blind from preventable or curable causes.”
The Branch for International Surgical Care (BISC) was created to advance surgical care in international health. It came about as a desire to build on the national interest in surgical care in international health and the realization of the strength of international activity that already exists among surgical members of the UBC faculty.
Their program is designed for graduate students, postgraduate trainees, surgical faculty, or surgery-related health care workers across the globe. The fully online course format enables individuals from all around the world and at all stages of their surgical care careers to expand their knowledge of surgical care in low-resource regions.
