The Next Generation of Surgeon-Investigators Tackle Tough Questions Facing Surgeons and Patients in the 6th Annual STARS Event
How do we define “competence” in surgical consultation? What factors lead to overuse of invasive screening tests in low-risk patients with bladder cancer? These are some of the questions posed by 15 young surgical-investigators from Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and the Geisel School Medicine at the sixth annual STARS (Surgical Trainees Advancing Research Symposium) April 12-13 at DHMC. Symposium co-directors, Dartmouth Institute Associate Professor Philip Goodney, MD, and Kari Rosenkranz, MD, presided over the two-day event sponsored by the Department of Surgery at DHMC. The symposium promotes interest in surgical health services research among young and aspiring surgeons through a spirited but supportive competition.
Adil Haider, MD, MPH, Kessler director at the Center for Surgery and Public Health, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Public Health, delivered the keynote, “Enhancing Our Cultural Dexterity: The Next Step in Reducing Disparities and Providing Patient-Centered Surgical Care.” Haider and DHMC’s surgeon judges, Christina Angeles, Phil Goodney, Joga Ivatury, Kari Rosenkranz, and Sandra Wong also awarded prizes to the top presentations given by surgical trainees.
They were as follows:
- First Prize: Jesse Columbo, MD, “Beware the Negative Stress Test: Postoperative Cardiac Events May Be More Prevalent Than in Patients Without a Preoperative Workup”
- Second Prize: Peter Kahng, Geisel School of Medicine, “Testing the Efficacy of Intraoperative Imaging for Trans-Oral Surgery”
- Third Prize: David Han, Geisel School of Medicine, “Overuse of cystoscopic surveillance among patients with low-risk non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer — A national study of patient, provider, and facility factors”
- QuickShot Prize: Abishek Swarup, MD, “The Effect of Nonoperative Management of Chronic Anal Fissure and Hemorrhoid Disease on Bowel Function Patient-Reported Outcomes”
