Association of Women Surgeons

AWS Grand Rounds serves as an opportunity to bring together medical students, residents, and faculty to catalyze an important shift in the culture of medicine and address implicit bias and microaggressions. The keynote speech and workshops aim to help attendees gain a common understanding of the challenges posed to women surgeons and of avenues to propose, implement, and revise strategies to address these challenges together as a Duke community.

Chief Talks

Chief Talks consists of exit presentations given by Chief Residents from the General Surgery and Cardiothoracic residency programs. Each Resident will give a 15-20 minute presentation followed by a 10 minute Q&A session.
