Naffziger Surgical Society Day brings together multiple generations of UCSF surgeons, from its most distinguished senior alumni to our current trainees. The goal is to generate substantive discussion of the history and future of surgical training and practice, while celebrating the common lineage of graduates of the UCSF Department of Surgery. The symposium will consist of a series of talks and panel discussions with Naffziger members from throughout the country, as well as UCSF faculty and residents, participating, capped off with a celebration dinner.
