This year marks the 50th birthday of the Association for Academic Surgery! We interview key surgeons in this week's episode to learn about the rise of the AAS and the current and future goals of the society. We are joined by current president Dr. Justin Dimick and past presidents, Dr. Charles Brunicardi and Dr. Lillian Kao.
A great listen that not only touches on the association itself, but also the ever-changing world of research.
Also, BTK will be covering the Academic Surgical Congress in Jacksonville from February 2-4, 2016! We will be giving live daily updates of the large conference that combines both the AAS and SUS (Society of University Surgeons). Going to be a good ride!
Dr. Heidi Nelson of the Mayo Clinic joins us on this weeks episode.
Dr. Nelson is the Fred C. Andersen Professor of Surgery and Chair, division of surgery research, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, and Program Director of the Alliance/ACS Clinical Research Program.

This week on BTK, Dr. Ali Salim, Division Chief of Trauma, Burns, and Surgical Critical Care at Brigham and Women's hospital and Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School, is joined by return guest moderator Dr. Matthew Martin to discuss Dr. Salim's research on racial disparities in organ donation.
In addition, Dr. Salim gives us Tips and Tricks on how he (and his team) manage penetrating abdominal trauma. Specifically, we discuss the situations where management is not so cut and dry (pun intended!). There isn't a better way to discuss this topic than with two experienced trauma surgeons!!
A great listen!
