Dr. Lemus was honored to be a part of the event especially since the event hasn’t commenced in Boston since 1950. During the event, scientific courses and sessions were available for practicing surgeons. This year their theme was “Joy and Privilege of a Surgical Career” and it’s safe to say surgeons are happy to save lives. There were more than 100-panel sessions, valuable lectures, research displays, and much more!
More than 200 companies were on-site exhibiting services and products that better the quality of medical practices. There were also plenty of resources available for postgraduates! For example, they had a panel session about leadership and career development for young surgeons. The event also covered health issues such as breast cancer treatment and public health. If lectures weren’t enough, they also had video sessions about surgical cases in trauma and many others.
