Drs. Hoyt, Drake, Stewart, and Nine Others Headline This Year’s Named Lectures


A highlight of each year’s Clinical Congress is the Named Lectures, which provide attendees with opportunities to hear internationally renowned surgeons and figures in healthcare share their perspectives and insights on medicine and surgery. Clinical Congress 2022 will offer 12 lectures, including a new Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Lecture. 

Of special note this year is the Martin Memorial Lecture, delivered immediately after the Opening Ceremony on Monday by David B. Hoyt, MD, FACS, MAMSE. As the Immediate Past ACS Executive Director, Dr. Hoyt will reflect on the challenges and successes of his 12 years as a leader of the College. Following the lecture, Dr. Hoyt will participate in a meet-and-greet with in-person attendees.

“We will all want to hear Dr. Hoyt’s reflections on a career well-served, supporting all of us in the House of Surgery,” said Patricia L. Turner, MD, MBA, FACS, ACS Executive Director.

The Named Lectures will be presented in-person and livestreamed. Each lecture also will be recorded and made available for on-demand viewing within an hour after the live presentation.
