Abstract

The surgeons that ensure humanitarian assignments (in non-governmental organizations) must operate, most often in difficult material conditions, injured and ill patients whose conditions belong the most various fields of surgery, in both war and peace practice. The evolution of surgical training towards overspecialization proves to be less and less compatible with the requirements of such assignments.
