5th Annual University of Rochester Surgical Symposium

5th Annual University of Rochester Surgical Symposium

Program Overview

Course Description: 

This Continuing Medical Education activity provides a forum for surgeons, primary care physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and other health care professionals to gather and discuss the latest trends, experimental methodologies, and key equipment in the surgical field. As new surgical techniques are perfected and new equipment comes to the forefront of medical use, there is persistent need for providers to have efficient means for providing acute care, as well as long-term follow-up and management of post-surgical patients. The science of specialized surgery continues to evolve and challenges the surgical professional to stay contemporary. Therefore this symposium will review contemporary issues, research findings and new surgical strategies and trends within the last year which are essential to the local care of the surgical and post-surgical patient.
