The University of Chicago Department of Surgery has developed an organization called the University of Chicago Phemister Surgical Society. This organization aims to:

  • Advance the science, art and practice of surgery
  • Promote the clinical and scientific endeavors of surgeons and surgical scientists
  • Build camaraderie among surgeons and surgical scientists
  • Honor individuals who have made special and significant contributions to the University of Chicago Department of Surgery

The Department of Surgery hopes to establish and maintain communications with its alumni to share in their activities and professional accomplishments.

Every year, the University of Chicago Surgical Society holds a reception at the American College of Surgeons Annual Clinical Congress to reconnect with our alumni. For more information about this event or about the society in general, please contact our President, Christopher Skelly, MD.
