The MGH Department of Surgery hosted Lord Ara Darzi of Denham, England, as the keynote speaker of the third annual Charles D. McCabe Lecture in Surgical Education Sept. 16. Darzi is the Paul Hamlyn Chair of Surgery at the Imperial College of London, a member of the House of Lords and the former parliamentary under-secretary of state in the Department of Health of the United Kingdom. He is one of the world’s foremost experts in surgical education and quality, safety and value in surgical practice. In addition to his “Innovation and Surgical Training” lecture, Darzi met with Department of Surgery and MGH leaders to discuss both education and quality programs.
“This was a great opportunity for the MGH to host one of the world’s leaders in surgical innovation,” says Keith Lillemoe, MD, chief of Surgery. “Both his lecture and the small group discussions were greatly entertaining and certainly enriched the audience.”
