#APSA50: Academic Surgery in 2019

Next in our #APSA50 series, comes a thoughtful discussion regarding academic surgery and future transformations. Dr. Ron Hirschl starts us off with a discussion on the changes they implemented at this years’ conference, including focused TED-style talks and presentations beyond the field of surgery. Dr. Allan Goldstein shares his thoughts on the shifting general surgery paradigm. We wrap it up with a continued debate on the role of social media in academic medicine. Drs Allan Goldstein and Todd Ponksy share their differing opinions.

Have a listen, and tell us—what do you think? How do you think academic medicine will change? How can we harness the benefits of social media without losing the validity assigned to publications and presentations are attributed with?

Join the discussion and let us know what you think!
