Projects That Impact You and Your Patients
The Maine Chapter is actively engaged in a wide variety of projects which impact the practice of surgery in Maine. Its interest in the practice of quality surgery in hospitals, large and small, University and non-University affiliated alike, in surgical training programs, in surveys showing both patterns and trends of surgical management, has been persistent and realistic. Concerns in the rapid changes of socio-economic patterns has been key to keeping step with problems of daily surgical practice, including professional liability matters, and governmental and other third-party in-roads in surgical practice.
The leadership and staff work with Maine Chapter Legislative Agents to empower the Chapter to speak with one voice. Our advocacy efforts work to get our members and their patients' message in front of the legislators. With Chapter presence at the statehouse, much has been and will be accomplished.
