CC2019: Scudder Oration on Trauma

imageA Perfect Storm

Presiding Officer and Introducer: Eileen M. Bulger, MD, FACS, Seattle, WA
Lecturer: M. Margaret Knudson, MD, FACS, San Francisco, CA

In 2014, the American College of Surgeons (ACS) formed a partnership with the U.S. Department of Defense Military Health System (MHS) to collaborate on a number of issues related to trauma and surgical care. The partnership is known as the Military Health System Strategic Partnership American College of Surgeons (MHSSPACS).

Over the last five years, the partnership has made significant strides toward its goal of improving educational opportunities, systems-based practices, and research capabilities in surgery, according to M. Margaret Knudson, MD, FACS, MHSSPACS medical director and professor of surgery, University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine.

Dr. Knudson provides an update on MHSSPACS initiatives and accomplishments and discusses the benefits of the partnership during the 2019 Scudder Oration on Trauma, A Perfect Storm.

The Scudder Oration on Trauma Lecture honors Charles Locke Scudder, a founding member of the ACS and a major contributor to the surgery of trauma.
