Visiting Professor Series

As part of our commitment to surgical education, the Department of Surgery invites distinguished surgeons as Visiting Professors.

During their two day tenure, each Visiting Professor has a chance to interact closely with our Surgical Residents during their Tuesday case conference, presenting cases relevant to their clinical interest. The following day, they then present at Grand Rounds providing our faculty and residents with the opportunity to gain insight on Visiting Professor's area of expertise.
