Tom Williams Surgical Research Day


The first Department of Surgery Resident Research Day occurred November 4, 1989.

Throughout the years the event has grown and undergone a name change. The event was dedicated as the Tom Williams Surgical Research Day in 1993 to honor Dr. Williams and recognize his contributions to the Department of Surgery.

In 2007, after Dr. Williams’ passing, the Department of Surgery Resident Research Day was officially rededicated as the Tom Williams Surgical Research Day.

The Tom Williams Surgical Research Day is an accredited event which occurs annually on the second Friday of May. Both oral and poster presentations are given at this event by residents and graduate students from the Department of Surgery.
