Dr. Gerald M. Fried, an investigator at the Research Institute of the McGIll University Health Centre, was recently elected Chair of the Board of Regents of the American College of Surgeons (ACS). This honour was conferred during the College’s annual Clinical Congress, held in Boston, October 21-25, 2018.
A general surgeon, Dr. Fried is Edward W. Archibald Professor and Chair of the Department of Surgery at McGill’s Faculty of Medicine and Surgeon-in-Chief at the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC). He is also the founder of the Steinberg-Bernstein Centre for Minimally Invasive Surgery and Innovation at the MUHC. Dr. Fried previously served as Adair Family Chair of Surgical Education and the program director for general surgery at McGill.
“The American College of Surgeons is the largest and most influential surgical organization in the world,” says Dr. Fried. “This is a wonderful opportunity for me to take a leadership role in the College as it addresses key issues related to training the next generation of surgeons, measuring and optimizing the quality of surgical care, and advocating for critical political issues such as firearms safety and disparity in health care delivery.”
Congratulations Dr. Fried!
