Interdisciplinary Surgical Colloquia for Outcomes Research (ISCORe)

The purpose of this colloquia series is to promote interdisciplinary research around surgical outcomes between the Department of Surgery, Department of Population Health Sciences, School of Nursing, and Department of Orthopedic Surgery. We will start the evening with an opportunity to informally meet and mix with colleagues from across the Health System and School of Medicine, along with heavy appetizers and drinks.
