Needs Statement

The field of surgery continues to change and develop for patient care, research and education. With growing technology through new studies from research to innovative work, the quality of patientcare is of highest value and need for each surgeon to stay update to date on current trends and outcomes. It is imperative for surgeons to stay abreast from the surgical findings from etiology, abnormalities, diseases, pathology to the state of the art surgical treatment for the patient. With this, surgeons will continue to broaden their research knowledge and extend this knowledge into their teaching of residents, fellows, and medical students. The invited speakers to this program are experts in their field of surgery and/or specialty. The goal of this meeting is to bring together expert surgeons in their surgical field that are world renowned to share this knowledge and expertise with our alumni and department. This meeting will promote the latest surgical knowledge, techniques, research, and education to those attending, which will in return these surgeons will bring this knowledge of information back to their practice groups and/or departments to disseminate further increasing the continual knowledge from this meeting as well as share with others and their specialties.
