Modern Practice: How Mine is Different from my Mom's

Sunday, May 1, 10:30 - 11:45 am

CME Credit Hours: 1.25

The newest generation of colorectal surgeons will need to confront an ever changing medical and social landscape.  The practice patterns and constructs that have worked in the past may not serve patients or surgeons as the health-care system continues to evolve.  This symposium will address the changing landscape of colorectal surgery practice and propose innovative tools to embrace change.


At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
  1. Recognize and  competently address cultural diversity
  2. Recognize the use of non-traditional work models to enhance wellness
  3. Identify the role of colorectal surgeons in the care of transgender patients
