Olga M. Jonasson Lecture: Recapturing the Joy of Surgery (No CME)
Recapturing the Joy of Surgery
Presiding Officer and Introducer: Susan E. Pories, MD, FACS, Cambridge, MA
Lecturer: Carol Scott-Conner, MD, PhD, FACS, Iowa City, IA
As a result of increasing fiscal and administrative constraints, many surgeons have become distanced from the satisfaction and joy that drew them to surgery in the first place, according to Carol Scott-Conner, MD, PhD, FACS, emeritus professor of surgery and emeritus chair, department of surgery, Carver College of Medicine, University of Iowa, Iowa City.
Dr. Scott-Conner discusses the importance of maintaining a sense of joy in the practice of surgery and offer some strategies to cope with the stressors that can diminish that joy during this year’s Olga M. Jonasson Lecture, Recapturing the Joy of Surgery, Tuesday afternoon.
The Olga M. Jonasson Lecture was established by the Women in Surgery Committee to honor the memory of Olga M. Jonasson, MD, FACS, who died in August 2006. The lectureship is a testimony to leadership and education in surgery, and a reflection of the capacity of women to reach academic pinnacles.
