Dr. Robert Winfield

Recipient of the EAST Leadership Development Workshop Scholarship


Not a week goes by when I don’t utilize a strategy or remember a lesson learned from the EAST Leadership Development Workshop. Receiving a scholarship to attend this three-year course was foundational for me as I’ve taken on a variety of roles at my institution, in EAST, and in other surgical organizations. The course provided me with the tools needed to lead effectively, and I am grateful to the EAST Development Fund for their investment in my future.
