Welcome to BFIRST – British Foundation for International Reconstructive Surgery & Training
BFIRST is a UK registered charity which trains surgeons working in the poorest countries in the world to enable them to undertake reconstructive Plastic Surgery, releasing children and adults from the state of poverty and destitution associated with disability and deformity.
The BFIRST / BBA Burns Care online symposium aims to provide high quality online instructional burns education relevant to low and middle-income countries (LMICs)/ limited resource settings. The symposium series has been designed by an international steering committee. We hope the symposium will help to bring together the global community of burn care providers in LMIC by being easily accessible and freely available.

BFIRST is looking to expand on its educational webinar capacity during the COVID pandemic, we are therefore keen to advertise freely available educational opportunities from other organisations. Of note, the Pulvertaft Hand Centre continues to run a successful webinar series with topics including the conservative management of hand fractures and Wide Awake Local Anaesthesia No Tourniquet (WALANT) which may both be relevant to Reconstructive Surgeons around the world, especially during the COVID Pandemic. These webinars can be accessed here.
