Kosova College of Surgeons (KCS) is established as a scientific and advocacy body to lead the advancement of the discipline of surgery in Kosova. The KCS, a non-profit scientific and educational association of surgeons, was founded in 2018 to improve the quality of care for the surgical patient by setting the highest standards for surgical education and practice. The College is dedicated to improving the care of the surgical patient and to advancing the ethical practice of surgery.
The College will work together with the healthcare authorities of Kosova to standardize the care, practice and protocols of surgical care and will work to advance the clinical, scientific and research agendas of surgery in Kosova in order to achieve worldwide standards.
The mission of KCS is to unify all practicing surgeons (including those in academic and public hospitals and institutions and those in private practice) across the country, residents of any surgical discipline and medical students who will pursue surgery in the future. This will be done through structured continuous education, policy changes organized through various committees, increasing surgical access for all patients, reducing complications, and improving the outcomes and lowering cost of care for all.
