Stanford has deployed a new decision algorithm to help triage Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the highest risk situations and keep front line health workers safe during the novel coronavirus pandemic.
On Friday, March 20, Stanford Surgery welcomed 24 new interns as part of the 2020 National Resident Matching Program.
“All three of the Department of Surgery’s residency programs. General Surgery, Vascular Surgery and Plastic Surgery had exceptional 2020 residency matches,” said Vice Chair of Education Dr. Jim Korndorffer. “Through tremendous efforts by the program directors and the programs’ staff, Stanford has recruited a diverse group from medical schools representing all regions of the US."
Dr. Carla Pugh has been elected to the American Board of Surgery (ABS) Council. Her term will start in July 2020 and will last for six years.
Dr. Pugh will join fellow Stanford Surgery Professor Dr. David Spain, who was elected to the council in September 2017, and Department Chair Dr. Mary Hawn, who serves as one of the ABS Directors.
