23rd Congress of the Michael E. DeBakey International Surgical Society
A group of Dr. Michael E. DeBakey’s trainees came together in 1976 with the goal of founding an organization to honor his innovative leadership, provide a forum for international scientific exchange, recognize superior surgeons, and provide financial support for surgeons seeking postgraduate training at Baylor College of Medicine. The Michael E. DeBakey International Surgical Society was founded on January 20, 1977, to perpetuate Dr. DeBakey’s vision through education, training, and recognition. This biennial meeting provides the opportunity for education and international exchange of scientific advances and technology.

Michael E. DeBakey Department of Surgery Alumni Symposium
Join us as we celebrate 66 years of excellence in resident education, patient care, research, and innovation. This very special event will highlight the state-of-the-art work taking place in the Michael E. DeBakey Department of Surgery. Our faculty, alumni, trainees, and guest speakers will present an exciting program of specific topics from each of our ten divisions. We are honored to welcome our keynote speaker Dr. Craig Miller, who is a vascular surgeon, the Michael E. DeBakey Fellow in the History of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health, and author of the recently released biography, A Time for All Things: The Life of Michael E. DeBakey.

8th Annual Research Day Symposium
We are excited to present our eighth annual Research Day Symposium, which highlights the academic achievements of our department trainees. The mission of the department’s research program is to conduct important research in surgical disease that will improve treatment and quality of life for affected patients and to train future leaders in academic surgery. This year’s symposium underscores both aspects of this mission by highlighting the exciting research activities of our residents, fellows, staff, and students. Our trainees and staff will present work that spans our divisions and affiliated hospitals. Their accomplishments also reflect the outstanding mentorship provided by our faculty members.
