Our Rural Surgery Webinar will take a slightly different approach in that we are privileged to have two physicians with decades of experience in rural emergency medicine and surgery. Dr. Moses and Dr. Roach have seen and done it all. They have been friends since medical school and between the two have nearly 100 years of medical expertise. They practice in a very rural area of Texas with limited access and resources and have been working together for decades to serve a large patient population that otherwise would have to travel great distances and would possibly not seek medical care.
Tune in for a moderated discussion about some of their most interesting cases and the valuable lessons they’ve learned along the way. This includes how to think out of the box when resources are limited or non-existent.
