September 17, 2019

General Surgery Resident Dr. Sunnie Wong has received a 2019 Travel Award from the Association for Academic Surgery (AAS). The award includes complimentary registration to attend the AAS Fall Course this October as well as a stipend to help allay travel costs.

"My goal in attending the AAS Fall Course is to learn how to effectively plan and start my academic career," said Wong. "I am excited to hear about insights into the different aspects of establishing a surgeon-scientist career and to network with surgeon scientists around the country."

Wong completed an MD/PhD program at Tulane University in New Orleans and was matched into Stanford's Accelerated Surgeon Scientist categorical track this past year.
