To support the surgery residents of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis.
To connect the alumni and faculty of the UT Department of Surgery.
To further the lifelong journey of research and education in surgery.
Each year, the Society provides important funding for an annual scientific session, a visiting professor, awards for outstanding surgical residents, and festivities in honor of the graduating Chief Residents.
In addition, the Society provides surgical loupes to our residents each year. This equipment is necessary to the training and development of the surgery residents. The surgical loupes would be a considerable out of pocket expense for the residents, and we are proud to be able to assist in this purchase.
