Welcome to the Academy of Surgical Research!
We’re happy you’re here! Please take some time to become familiar with the website and all that we have to offer. We offer varying surgical certification levels to help you become a leader in your field, a mentorship program to help you grow your professional career, multiple publication opportunities in either the Academy’s official journal ‘Surgeries’ or a members-only newsletter, Surgical Savvy. Two scholarships are also available to assist you in either attending the annual meeting, paying the annual membership fee, or taking a certification exam. A members-only section allows visibility to other members to connect with, presentations from prior annual meetings, and access to our Surgical Savvy newsletter.
We invite you all to join us for our 39th Annual meeting in Nashville, Tennessee, October 10-12, 2023 for good conversation, the opportunity to meet new friends, greet old friends and learn new things. As always, we encourage new, up and coming surgeons and techs to come learn new ideas, techniques and procedures from ASR mentors, presenters and the multitude of experience of our members. We welcome all our active members to attend as well. We all need a refresher now and again! Our wet labs are being held at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and we’re excited to partner with them this year. Who else better to team up with other than the largest comprehensive research, teaching and patient care health system in the Mid-South region?
We welcome all within the veterinary and human medical field who are performing surgical research or experimental surgery to attend. The annual meeting is also a great way to connect with vendors who can provide you with the right resources to improve your surgical outcomes. Multiple awards are also granted during the annual meeting promoting professional development. Both oral and poster presentations are accepted for each meeting. No subject is too insignificant to present on!
See you all in Nashville!!!!
