Several members of the UTMB Department of Surgery were cordially invited to the Women in Surgery Reception, hosted by Baylor College of Medicine – Michael E. DeBakey Department of Surgery, Houston Methodist Hospital, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, and The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. 

This year, the event honored Patricia L. Turner, MD, MBA, FACS; Executive Director & CEO, American College of Surgeons; Clinical Professor, University of Chicago Medicine. 

A message from Dr. Fortich: 

“It was wonderful to get to know women surgeons from the Houston area, all together to meet and connect with Dr. Patricia Turner. It was a great opportunity to meet and support women surgeons and aspiring surgeons. It was an event full of med students, residents, fellows, and attendings from every surgical specialty.
