19th Annual Louis R.M. DelGuercio Distinguished Visiting Professorship and Research Day

Sponsored annually since 2002, the Louis R.M. DelGuercio Research Day is named for the late Louis R.M. Del Guercio, M.D., professor emeritus of surgery, who served as chair of the Department for 24 years before retiring in 2000. The event provides students, residents and fellows with both an opportunity to showcase their research in oral and poster presentations and an occasion to network, learn from one another and potentially combine efforts to promote the advancement of surgical research.

The event concluded with an awards ceremony.
