A group of LGBTQ+ surgeons, learners, and allies from all surgical specialties.

You are welcome here. 

Welcome Our Prism Institutional Members


The Association of Out Surgeons and Allies is an organization of LGBTQ+ Surgeons and allies which promotes acceptance, inclusion and equity in the surgical specialties to further learner engagement, support individual clinicians and researchers, and build a community.


The AOSA also intends to create a space for LGBTQ+ surgeons and trainees that promotes a dignified and successful surgical career without stigma, judgment, or discrimination. We aim to achieve this through a combination of outreach, education, mentorship, and professional development
