As the global crisis of COVID-19 unfolds, our thoughts are with those most affected medically, financially and emotionally by this unexpected and tragic pandemic. The safety and well-being of our members and their families remain our first priority.
As the COVID-19 crisis has limited our ability to perform surgeries, see patients, and engage our residents in learning opportunities, we are hoping to develop a collaborative lecture series delivered by the New York faculty. You may have seen a similar project from UCSF, but we feel it is important to engage our section especially given the severity with which the pandemic has affected our region. We will be titling this series the Educational Multi-Institution Program for Instructing Residents (EMPIRE).
