Clinical Congress 2022

Drs. Hoyt, Drake, Stewart, and Nine Others Headline Clinical Congress Named Lectures

September 20, 2022

A highlight of each year’s Clinical Congress is the Named Lectures, which provide attendees with opportunities to hear internationally renowned surgeons and healthcare experts share their insights on medicine and surgery. Clinical Congress 2022 will offer 12 lectures, with a new Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Lecture. 

Of special note is the Martin Memorial Lecture, delivered immediately after the Opening Ceremony on Monday by David B. Hoyt, MD, FACS, MAMSE, who will reflect on his 12 years as ACS Executive Director and look back at his long and remarkable career. Following the lecture, Dr. Hoyt will participate in a meet-and-greet with in-person attendees.

“We will all want to hear Dr. Hoyt’s reflections on a career well-served, supporting all of us in the House of Surgery,” said Patricia L. Turner, MD, MBA, FACS, ACS Executive Director & CEO.

The Named Lectures will be presented in-person and livestreamed. Each lecture also will be recorded and made available for on-demand viewing within an hour after the live presentation.
