Welcome to ICS

The International College of Surgeons (ICS) is a global organization dedicated to bringing together surgeons and surgical specialists of all nations, races, and creeds to promote surgical excellence for the benefit of all of mankind and to foster fellowship worldwide.

Since 1935, the ICS has been offering quality programs toward this end, such as the following:

International Surgical Education

With an internationally respected peer review and over 90 original articles per year, the “International Surgery” journal brings the world of surgical advances to you on a monthly basis. There is simply no better single resource for surveying the scope and practice of surgery worldwide. The journal is available by subscription and to members.

In 1954, ICS used it's collection of donated objects and artwork to create the International Museum of Surgical Science. With exhibits that highlight both surgical history and developing science, he museum strives to bring the international aspects of science, history and art to an increasing audience from the entire world.

Global Medical Activism

Through collaborative projects with W.H.O., the U.N., and other global health care related organizations, ICS takes direct action to better medical services throughout the world.

Global Medical Fellowship

Through Regional and International scientific meetings, ICS provides an opportunity for members to exchange professional knowledge, establish friendships, and create mutual respect and understanding. It is our belief that strengthed global communications will benefit the entire surgical community.

Global Humanitarian Surgery

The ICS Humanitarian Surgical Team program sends groups of qualified teaching surgeons to developing countries to share up-to-date surgical advancements and techniques with local surgeons, offer the best surgical advice on treatment and prevention, and provide first class surgery to less fortunate people. Surgical supplies and equipment are sometimes donated to the host hospitals and medical schools they visit. Each "team" establishes an exchange of professional knowledge with the host country/region, which continues long after the mission is completed.

To become a part of our efforts, please consider becoming an ICS member or supporting our work with a donation.
