The AAS Blog “The Academic Surgeon” celebrates its first year of existence, and in that time has made available dozens of articles, ideas and opinions to the AAS community. Created to help AAS keep a dynamic presence outside of its national meeting, the blog is our online digital forum for news, insight and discussion, including articles on the scope and nature of academic surgery, updates on new technologies in the surgical community, regular member news and announcements, reports from AAS committees and representatives and stories and experiences shared from our members.
As we enter the second year of the Academic Surgeon, we want to remind our members and constituents that we are constantly seeking new submissions for the blog, and welcome your input. A wide variety of submissions will be considered with themes including education, outcomes, quality, basic science, leadership, management, career development, diversity, and productivity. Above all, we want the content to be informative, relevant, and fresh. So if you are interested please email JJ Jackman at the AAS Administrative Office and volunteer.
