Second Annual UCSF Naffziger Surgical Society Day

UCSF Naffziger Surgical Society Day

Friday, May 11, 2018

Dear Colleagues,

You are invited to attend the second annual UCSF Naffziger Surgical Society Day on Friday, May 11, 2018. Naffziger Day will be a one-day non-CME symposium dedicated to the past, present and future of UCSF surgery, capped off with a celebration dinner.

The symposium will consist of a series of talks and panel discussions by Naffziger members from around the country, as well as current UCSF faculty and residents. Renowned endocrine surgeon Gerard M. Doherty, MD will be the featured guest speaker. Doherty is Moseley Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School, Surgeon-in-Chief at Brigham Health & Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Crowley Family Distinguished Chair in the Department of Surgery, Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Doherty has dedicated his career, focused on surgical oncology, to advancing the care of patients with endocrine tumors.

Our goal is to bring together multiple generations of UCSF surgeons, from our most distinguished senior alumni to our current trainees. We hope to generate substantive discussion of the history and future of surgical training and practice, while celebrating our common lineage as graduates of the UCSF Department of Surgery.
