NPSA 2023 Annual Meeting

Nov 10-11, 2023
Hyatt Regency, Vancouver, BC

The call for abstracts has CLOSED.  NPSA is scheduling for approximately 30 abstract presentations. 

That disparities in access, representation and outcomes in healthcare and surgery exist has been documented for many years. The North Pacific Surgical Association is committed to addressing diversity and inclusion in surgery and as well as eliminating disparities in health/ surgical outcomes for our patients. As such we are encouraging our members, residents and fellows to consider presenting work on these issues in the surgical realm or to consider clinical research projects with an eye towards addressing these issues in surgery in substantive ways that maybe shared at future meetings to encourage all to be involved to change our systems in positive ways.
