Emergency General Surgery Committee

The EAST Emergency General Surgery Committee seeks to facilitate and improve the exchange of knowledge for urgent and emergent general surgery; encourage research endeavors into the care of patients with urgent and emergent general surgical conditions, support EAST members interested in the surgical care of acute disease, and to stimulate future generations of surgeons to meet the challenge.

The Emergency General Surgery Committee is responsible for developing educational sessions and/or opportunities to be presented at the Annual Scientific Assembly that focus on advancing emergency general surgery as a career path for young surgeons. The committee collaborates with related organizations to inform and promote emergency general surgery as a critical piece in the training of acute care surgeons. This committee will work to better define the needs of the EAST members as they relate to the development of acute care surgery as a fellowship and future career path.

Committee members are appointed by the President with approval by the Board of Directors.  Committee member terms are three years.  All terms begin in January and conclude in January in the year specificed in "term ends".
