Labs & Techniques


Members of the Department Faculty with combat experience in the Republic of Vietnam have been asked to write vignettes of their experience.

Another project undertaken by the Chairman has been to videotape various national and international surgical leaders commenting on issues of historical significance.

There is within Department spaces a photographic record of USUHS graduates and faculty who have and who continue to contribute to our Surgical Heritage.
