We will be discussing the different paradigms of leadership as a surgeon.

We will explore how non traditional avenues for leadership as a surgeon exist and can be pursued as a part of our surgical career.  Finally, we will focus on understanding how as a busy clinician we can commit to social change through advocacy.
