Attn. OAGS Members: March E-Update has now been released. Please check your email.

COVID19: Attn. General Surgeons - As of March 15, the Ontario Medical Association has announced that all "non-essential care and elective surgery must be temporarily put on hold to protect all health-care providers, patients and the public, and most importantly, to manage what we expect may be tremendous demand on the system from spread of the virus." Ongoing updates pending Ministry guidelines. (As of March 17, Ontario Premier Doug Ford has declared a State of Emergency.)

Section on General Surgery and OAGS Executives STRONGLY SUPPORT this decision and urge our members to work with their hospitals to cancel all non urgent care interactions in a coordinated fashion with other surgical services.
