“I get goosebumps every single year at the Convocation,” described Anton N. Sidawy, MD, MPH, FACS, DFSVS, in a recent conversation with ACS President Julie A. Freischlag, MD, FACS, DFSVS, about attending his first Convocation ceremony at Clinical Congress. “[Attending is] fun not only for the surgeon himself or herself, but also for the whole family. … It is a moment of pride and a moment of celebration,” said Dr. Sidawy, Chair of the ACS Board of Regents.
Dr. Freischlag echoed his sentiments, adding, “I am so excited to attend Clinical Congress when we haven’t been together in such a long period of time. … And we’ll be so excited to see our international colleagues because they haven’t been able to travel to see us.”
