April 2021

Dear IAES members,

An entire year has gone by with the world continuing to struggle with the pandemic.  All of us on the IAES council hope that in 2021 we will begin to see some light at the end of the tunnel.  We have all learned a lot this past year, not only about viruses and vaccines but also learned about our personal resilience to adapt and focus on what is truly important to each of us.


A few updates on the website for you to read...


Our 2021 Newsletter (found here if you missed its delivery via email...) has the outline of our virtual content for the ISS/IAES meeting this August 30th - September 3rd, 2021. Although it would be more fun to see you all in person, the video content of the IAES will have something for everyone.


Dr. Sally Carty has provided a thoughtful editorial highlighting recent publications on women in surgery in our ‘what’s new’ in the literature section.


Dr. Hans Roher sent a few pictures of the founding members of the IAES that can be found in the History section of our website


Highlights of the recent IAES postgrad course will be posted on our website soon.
