The symposium generates substantive discussion of the history and future of surgical training and practice, while celebrating the common lineage of graduates of the UCSF Department of Surgery.
The distinguished list of symposium speakers includes UCSF faculty Julie Ann Sosa, MD, MA, FACS, the new Department of Surgery Chair, and Lygia Stewart, MD; Edward Chen, MD of Emory University; Jerry Goldstone, MD, FACS, FRCSE (hon) of Case Western Reserve; and the featured guest lecturer, Gerard M. Doherty, MD of Harvard Medical School who is also Surgeon-in-Chief at Brigham Health and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
There will be a celebration dinner following the symposium honoring the outgoing class of graduating Chief Residents. Naffziger Day will be preceded by a Women in Surgery event on the evening of May 10th.
