As a new surgeon out of training, I would like to become involved with the Association for Academic Surgery. I am currently an assistant professor at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, where my role is that of a community-based academic endocrine surgeon under the SIU Department of Surgery. I work with SIU medical students and general surgery residents in our community hospitals and value my role in clinical education. I intend to integrate clinical and educational research in my practice and would appreciate the opportunity to work with the AAS and connect with potential mentors in academia. I would be happy to serve on any committee and aim to promote the core values of academic surgery as well as diversity, equity and inclusion.
