Everything we study, practice and sacrifice is to serve our patients and communities. Surgeons work to keep one simple and powerful promise:
To Heal All With Skill and Trust.
Now more than ever is the time for surgeons to recommit to the values that drive us. We are excited to announce a new effort to remind patients and our communities of the unique role of surgeons in society and, importantly, to remind ourselves of what it takes to earn it.
