Title: Resident and Associate Society Symposium: Reframing Surgical Leadership in 2017: Surgeon-Scientist or Surgeon-Advocate?
Date and Time of Session: Sunday, October 22: 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Description: During this session, young surgeons and experienced surgeons will debate such issues as: Given the increasing regulatory environment which is leading to diminished autonomy in the operating room and in patient care, how do surgeons best fit into the new paradigm for the care of our patients and for the health of society in general? What does surgical leadership look like in the future? Should we strive to have more of a say in the policies that govern our environments and/or overall healthcare delivery? Or do we best serve our patients by focusing on the more traditional model of delivering high quality surgical care and participating in surgical research and innovation, leaving policy-making to the experts? These questions and more will be featured and debated at the 2017 RAS-ACS Symposium in San Diego.
