Summer Research Program Banquet

August 7th, 2014

This summer our research team, physicians, and fellows had the opportunity to get to know a great group of future physicians. Twelve students from different regions of the United States and educational backgrounds: High school graduates, undergraduates, and college graduates, have spent the last two months with our physicians and staff. They started each day as the surgeons do bright and early at 6:30am, and stayed till late in the evenings for rounds. They shadowed the physicians on a daily basis and each student completed an advanced research project. This week we were able to celebrate their achievements as each student gave a presentation on the research they completed. The presentations were on a variety of topics including Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, Esophageal Cancer, LESS Surgery, and Pancreatic Cancer. We are very proud of them, and we look forward to seeing the great things they will accomplish in the future.

Florida Hospital Tampa is committed to encouraging future doctors and surgeons to explore the fields of digestive disorders and pancreatic cancer. Working with future physicians in this setting provides a valuable space for students and professionals to interact and exchange meaningful ideas. Another initiative that fosters the same type of learning, Women in Surgery, was developed by Dr. Ross in order to encourage women to embrace the surgical field. The Women in Surgery International Symposium is the largest professional and academic event for women surgeons and those interested in pursuing surgery.

Florida Hospital Tampa looks forward to continuing our initiative to encourage and advance the role of young professionals and women in the surgical field, especially around minimally invasive surgical procedures.

For more information how you can get involved with the hospital as a young professional or a woman, please contact us at (813) 615- 7030.
