"The symposium provides a fantastic opportunity for students
throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey interested in surgery
to engage with each other and listen to renowned surgeons
speak about topics tailored directly to them. It is a privilege to
be able to provide students the chance to hear from excellent
mentors and help build relationships with their surgically
inclined peers from other institutions."
The keynote address in 2016, entitled "Choosing a Career in
Academic Surgery," was given by Dr. Jeffrey Carpenter, Professor
and Founding Chairman and Chief of the Department of Surgery
of Cooper Medical School of Rowan University and Vice President
of Perioperative Services at Cooper University Health Care.
While growing in attendance and regard, the symposium continues
to be run proudly by students, for students. As budding medical
professionals who have been drawn in by the unparalleled grandeur,
the alluring I see a problem, I fix it mentality of surgery, we on the
planning committee feel obliged to share this passion with all who
show interest in the field and are exceedingly grateful for all the
speakers, donors, and students who allow us to do so. Medical
students from Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson
University, Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University,
Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania,
Pennsylvania College of Osteopathic Medicine, Rowan University
School of Osteopathic Medicine, Cooper Medical School of Rowan
University, and Drexel University College of Medicine are proud
to announce that this year, the 7th Annual Philadelphia Surgery
Symposium will take place at the Dorrance H. Hamilton Building
on the Thomas Jefferson University campus from 5 to 9pm on
March 31st, 2017, and will feature a keynote address by Dr. Amy
Goldberg, Chair and Professor of Surgery and Surgeon-in-Chief
of Temple University Health System. A poster presentation session
will also accompany the event with one winner being chosen from
each participating school. A reception will be held afterwards at
Smokin' Betty's restaurant in Center City for all those who wish
to attend. We would like to extend especially grateful thanks to
this year's donors: the Philadelphia County Medical Society, the
Philadelphia Academy of Surgery, the Metro Philadelphia Chapter
of the American College of Surgeons, the Pennsylvania Medical
Society, and Sidney Kimmel Medical College, without whom, this
event would not be possible.
