SELF Symposium

August 29–30, 2024

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

In concert with International Surgery Week 2024 (ISW)

See one, teach yourself one, do one.

The SELF Symposium is a gathering of health and education leaders aimed at accelerating progress toward a future where access to high-quality procedural skills training is universal. 

The Surgical Education Learners Forum (SELF) is a program that develops and evaluates procedural skills training modules for clinicians in low-resource settings. These modules are designed to allow clinicians to train themselves on the simple and complex psychomotor skills of surgical and interventional procedures at the point of care, on their own time, and without the need for a constant instructor.
