Maryland Chapter

Maryland Chapter functions through the coordinated activity of its individual members, for the support and improvement of the practice of surgery in the state. With the help of an executive director, the Chapter relies completely on the energy and initiative of interested Maryland surgeons. We welcome the participation of any interested individuals.
