Pediatric General Surgery SIG


If you are interested in joining a SIG email us at and tell us what SIG you would like to join or simply mail in your SIG application.

Developed in 2016, the Pediatric General Surgery special interest group was founded by a group of committed members seeking to promote networking and education opportunities for NAPNAP members working in hospital or surgical settings. We are looking to grow our SIG to include members from across the country working in private and public institutions. Our goal is to develop ideas to provide resources for all NAPNAP members which can be utilized with their patients and families. The pediatric surgical population spans from fetal development into early adulthood. This population benefits from pediatric trained specialist to receive their individualized surgical care. NAPNAP can now provide focused attention to this specialty by providing networking opportunities and resources to members and their patients.
