In a basement room at the American University of Beirut, some 50 doctors watch headcam footage of Dr. David Nott stitching together the abdomen of a man injured in fighting using a new technique he had perfected during the siege of Aleppo. Nott, a multispecialty surgeon based in London, aimed to share some of the knowledge gained during his 25 years working in conflicts to doctors from Lebanon and around the region. A recent report by Physicians for Human Rights said that 847 medical personnel were killed between March 2011 and the end of December 2017, while as early as December 2013 the Syrian Integrated Needs Assessment – a multisectorial humanitarian needs assessment – reported that 80,000 doctors had fled the country.
