Eric R. Frykberg, MD Lecture and Surgery Research Day

The Department of Surgery holds an annual Surgery Research Day, designed to showcase and celebrate the exceptional research work in which our resident scholars participate. The goal is to congratulate those residents and post-doctoral scholars who have completed their work as well as to stimulate them to pursue additional endeavors. In 2016, Research Day was renamed in honor of Dr. Eric Frykberg, an MUSC Surgical alumnus, who built a brilliant and productive career that has made the practice of Surgery safer, better, and smarter, the MUSC Department of Surgery

Save the Date for the 2018 Surgery Research Day: September 28, 2018

Each year, the Department invites a guest judge and lecturer to participate in Surgery Research Day. This year, Harvey Pass, M.D., an MUSC Cardiothoracic Surgery Residency Class of 1982 alumnus was the Stephen E. Banner Professor of Thoracic Oncology in the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery and Professor, Department of Surgery and Vice Chair of Research at New York University Langone Health.
