We ask for your help. There may be surgeons who are colleagues or working within your institution or postgraduate trainees in surgery who would value participating in and contributing to the Surgery Track sessions at the AMEE Conference. It is not too late for them to register. We would be grateful if you drew their attention to this important theme at the AMEE Conference and to the sessions arranged as described above.
