MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENTS
On behalf of the AAS and SUS Executive Committees, we are pleased to welcome you to our 7th Annual
Academic Surgical Congress held February 14-16, 2012 at the Encore Las Vegas in exciting Las Vegas,
Nevada.
2012 marks the seventh year that our societies have collaborated to bring you the best educational,
clinical and basic science research conducted by faculty, residents and medical students today. Under
the leadership of SUS Publications Chair, Dr. Dev M. Desai and AAS Recorder, Dr. Julie Ann Sosa, the
AAS and SUS Program Committees have offered up another innovative scientific program to our attendees. We are delighted that Dr. Norman Rich will be delivering the AAS Founders Lecture and that
Dr. Karyn Butler will be presenting the SUS Joel J. Roslyn Lecture on Simulation Education in Critical
Care. It is also an honor to award Dr. Patricia Donahoe the SUS Lifetime Achievement Award for 2012.
The Education Committee will hold a session on the 80-Hour Workweek, with unique perspectives from
the ACS, ABS and ACGME, as well as a networking lunch regarding Pearls and Pitfalls in your Education
Career. The Issues Committee will hold a panel on Maintaining and Expanding Your Academic Surgical
Career and there will be a special Outcomes Panel Discussion on Building a Successful Health Services
Research Program. The State-of-the-Art Lectures will once again impress attendees by featuring experts discussing evolving strategies for esophageal, fetal, pancreatic and acute care surgery. The AWS
lunch session will highlight women in surgical leadership and present the strategies in maintaining relationships during leadership positions as well as how women in leadership is perceived through younger
eyes.
For the third year in a row, the Hot Topic Symposia will be another highlight of the meeting. Spread over
two days, the hot topic symposia will feature two sessions over the lunch hour. On Tuesday, we will
focus on surgery in the elderly and patients near the end of life, and on Thursday we will discuss minimally invasive surgery and laparo-endoscopic single site surgery.
In addition to the traditional AAS and SUS Plenary Sessions, we are excited to introduce three new
plenary sessions, each of which will highlight the very best science in each of the three major research
arenas: outcomes research, basic science research and education research. The combination of these
state-of-the-art research sessions, the special programs designed specifically for medical students and
trainees, and a week full of opportunities to connect with colleagues in an exciting city will mark this
meeting as the one not to have missed.
We urge you to take advantage of the excellent educational and social activities that this year’s congress has to offer.
Welcome to Las Vegas!!

against human ovarian carcinomas, the molecular mechanisms of sex differentiation and the surgical reconstruction of
children with intersex disorders. Since stepping down from
clinical surgery, Dr. Donahoe has focused on the genetics of
birth defects, particularly Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia,
with the hypothesis that major congenital anomalies are the
result of genetic mutations that in aggregate will reveal molecular pathways that can serve as targets for new therapies.
Dr. Donahoe grew up in Massachusetts, a
graduate from Braintree High School, and
received a B.S. Magnum Cum Laude from
Boston University, and was a member of the Athletic Hall of
Fame at both institutions. She received her M.D. from the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New
York. Dr. Donahoe has had an outstanding pediatric surgical
career with Massachusetts General Hospital, specializing in
genitourinary, abdominal, and thoracic repairs. Currently, she
serves as Director of the Pediatric Surgical Research Laboratories and also as Chief Emerita of Pediatric Surgical Services
at Massachusetts General Hospital where she has worked
virtually her entire career in a wide variety of pediatric surgical and research endeavors. Dr. Donahoe is the Marshall K.
Bartlett Professor of Surgery (Tenured) at the Harvard Medical
School. She is an Associate Member of the Broad Institute, a
Principle Faculty Member of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute,
and an Associate Faculty member of the Center for Human
Genomic Research at the Massachusetts General Hospital.
She is a member of the Board of Trustees of Boston University
and of a number of Scientific Advisory Boards. She has pub-
Dr. Donahoe is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the
Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences.
She is a past President of the Boston Surgical Society, the
American Pediatric Surgical Association, and the current President of the New England Surgical Society. Dr. Donahoe has
received research prizes and honorary degrees for her work
on MIS, which is being developed as a therapeutic for ovarian and other reproductive cancers. She is the recipient of the
Department of Defense Life Time Achievement Academy Dean
Award for ovarian cancer. She hopes that her more recent
studies of the genetics of congenital abnormalities will lead to
therapies that can be instituted in utero or shortly after birth to
alleviate some of these conditions.
Starting in 2005, the Society of University Surgeons initiated a Lifetime Achievement Award
(LTAA). This award was designed to recognize individuals who have had a sustained career in
academic surgery with contributions to the surgical sciences. In addition, these individuals have
demonstrated a commitment to the Society of University Surgeons whereby they have participated in the Society even after superannuating to Senior Membership status. Their participation
in the Society is evidenced by their attendance at the meetings yearly and active participation in
discussion of papers, attendance of the banquets and society functions.
The Society of University Surgeons seeks to honor and recognize these individuals because of
their embodiment of the principles of the Society. We seek to recognize these individuals to establish role models for younger generations of surgeons to honor and emulate their contributions
to the science of surgery, and moreover to the Society of University Surgeons.

The primary purpose of this session is to bring together young faculty with more senior faculty for the purposes of mentoring.
The specific focus will be on grant writing for the purpose of obtaining the first extramural grant (K grants) or
for moving from a mentored grant to independent investigator status (K to R transition). We will utilize several
small group sessions that will allow for critical review of grants in progress followed by a year-long mentoring effort.
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
1. Develop grant-writing skills.
2. Provide critical feedback on grants in progress.
3. Establish mentoring relationships for junior faculty.

Check out AAS’ New Look!
Dear AAS Member,
On behalf of the Association for Academic Surgery (AAS) Executive Council, I am pleased to announce
the official launch of the new dynamic branding for the society. I personally want to thank the members of
the AAS Executive Council, who spent many hours over the past six months carefully selecting the color
schemes, logo and design elements of the AAS and choosing the palettes that capture the essence of
what the AAS is…a strong, inclusive and energetic organization focused on providing opportunities for
young academic surgeons.
We are very excited about this new branding, and I hope you have noticed the new look on our web site
and in our newsletters, membership brochures, Fall Courses brochures and all printed materials. Please
go to our web site at www.aasurg.org to view all of the new changes. As always, your suggestions on
improving our communication and web site content are appreciated.
Very best regards,
Scott A. LeMaire, MD
AAS President

The Association for Academic Surgery Foundation (AASF) partners
with the Association for Academic Surgery (AAS) to provide monetary
support for surgical research through grants to surgeon scientists and to
organizations which support surgical research and surgical research
education.
The AASF is one of few non-profit organizations that support the research
efforts of surgeon-scientists. This support is critical to translate new
discoveries into clinical advancements for the patients we serve. Without
support, "would be" surgeon scientists choose to limit the scope of their
practice to clinical service. Surgeon-scientists have an amazing track
record of medical discoveries from principles of antisepsis and anesthesia
to surgical procedures such as the Blalock-Taussig shunt. The loss of
surgeon-scientists is an alarming trend, which risks the loss of significant
advancements in surgical care going forward. This threat is largely due to
a lack of available funding.
The mission of the AASF is to expand sources offunding for surgical
research. The AAS and AASF partner to provide support for the following
Grants/Awards/Programs:
•
•
•
•
•
•
The Association for Academic Surgery Foundation Research
Fellowship Award
AAS Student Research Awards
AAS Student Travel Grants
West African Fundamentals of Research and Career

We ask you to partner with us in our mission. Invest in the AAS and the
future of surgical research and surgical research education by making
a contribution to the Association for Academic Surgery Foundation. To

SUS-WYETH INTERNATIONAL
SCHOLARS PROGRAM
YOUNG INVESTIGATOR TRAVEL AWARDS
The SUS sponsors two travel awards per year. Two of the
presenters at the Plenary Session of the annual SUS meeting
will be selected to receive Travel Awards. Selection is made
by members of the Executive Council, past presidents of the
SUS and representatives of foreign surgical societies. The
Publications Chair coordinates the selection process. The
merits of the research, the quality of the presentation, and the
skills demonstrated during the discussion will be considered
in selecting award recipients. Each award recipient will attend
either the SARS or ESSR meeting in the year following their
selection where they will present their research. The SUS
provides round trip coach air fare for the award recipient,
while the foreign societies provide accommodations and
registration fees for the meeting. The award is intended for
surgical resident trainees or surgical junior faculty.
INTERNATIONAL LEADERSHIP AWARDS
Physician leaders from the SUS are chosen each year to
represent the SUS at the annual meetings of its sister international surgical societies. In each case, they are expected
to present some aspect of their scientific or clinical work and
participate in important interchanges with the leaders of the
various international surgical societies.
