2016 SUO/AADO/OPDO Combined Meeting
Grand Hyatt, Denver
November 11-12, 2016
Exciting times of change are upon us. The 2016 SUO/AADO/OPDO Combined meeting offers a broad range of timely topics relevant to the rapidly changing environment of academic medicine as it pertains to Otolaryngology. Hot topics on Friday’s session include Millennial Learning and Communication and How Do We Pick Our Applicants?
Our Saturday program highlights Quality and Safety in the operating room. The controversial area of simultaneous surgeries will be discussed in a lively panel. This issue has been brought to the forefront with highly publicized issues surrounding simultaneous surgeries prompting a position statement put forward by the American College of Surgeons that opposes simultaneous surgeries. Our Section of Residents and Fellows will then present a panel on Resident Autonomy versus Supervision, A Culture of Safety in the Operating Room.
As one of the least diverse specialties, we look forward to learning more about efforts to promote diversity, inclusion and equity from Dr. Howard Francis. All in all, it promises to be an educational and thought-provoking meeting.
There is not a better organization or meeting to learn, share and reflect about Academic Otolaryngology. We look forward to seeing all of you at this year’s meeting being held at the Grand Hyatt in Denver, Colorado. It has truly been my privilege and honor to serve as your President this year.
