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.
BFIRST have hosted a number of webinars in recent months, both independently and in collaboration with the British Society for Surgery of the Hand, the British Burn Association and many more global surgery partners. To view a full list of recordings and information regarding upcoming events please click here.
BFIRST is still 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.
