Dr. Fonte believes this year’s discipline program “will appeal to
all osteopathic surgeons. Whether you work in the big city, a small rural town,
or do missionary work in a third world country, there will be information
relevant to your practice. We are also bringing back a dynamic trauma surgeon
who is sure to teach us all a thing or two. And we would be remiss if we didn't
address the issue of modern anticoagulants and their role and considerations in
surgery today. On behalf of the discipline, we hope you will enjoy the talks,
learn a lot, meet old friends and make new ones, and continue to make the ACA a
central part of your ongoing professional education.”
