On Wednesday, May 1st, 2019, The University of Michigan held its 31st Annual Moses Gunn Research Conference at North Campus Research Complex. This conference is special one as it’s an opportunity for students and residents to showcase their hard work and dedication to improving the field surgery.
As Departments of Surgery across the country seek to continuously improve the access and delivery of high quality of surgical care to all patients as well as the functioning of complex delivery teams, it is necessary to recruit, retain and foster trainees and faculty who are underrepresented minorities.
Dr. Coleman discusses her commitment to recruiting and developing the best future surgical residents, fellows, and vascular surgery leaders as a program director of the vascular surgery residency and fellowship programs at Michigan Medicine.
Our team Ferroximend won first place in the competition, and received funding, important guidance, and invaluable feedback that has helped us to focus our pre-clinical studies and regulatory strategies in a manner aligned with translation.
The Michigan Promise began as an intentional investment in faculty development at the University of Michigan – the goal was to change the face of American Surgery for the next generation. Where better to continue, than with the residents?
The purpose of the conference was to unite students and faculty from across North America to share the work they are doing to address the lack of diversity among health care providers, exchange ideas, discover opportunities for collaboration, and reinforce why this work is so important.
