Surgical Care during COVID-19
We have taken unprecedented steps to ensure your in-person visits are welcoming and safe. In this video, Yolonda Colson, MD, PhD, chief of Thoracic Surgery, & Thoralf Sundt, MD, chief of Cardiac Surgery, discuss the safety measures that have been implemented at Mass General.
We believe that because of diversity we excel; through inclusion we respect; focused on equity we serve, heal, educate and innovate.
The Department of Surgery is committed to recruiting candidates from diverse backgrounds. We have a diversity committee of faculty, staff and residents that meets to discuss program development.
Everyone should have the healthiest life possible, and I’m grateful my children and I can have ours.
