The Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care’s Division of Acute Care Surgery was once again well represented at the American College of Surgeons Clinical Congress, which took place in San Diego this past October. A number of faculty members, residents and students presented their original research, delivered invited lectures or moderated panel sessions at the event.
