The 45th Annual Benjamin S. Park, Jr., MD 2014 Visiting Professor Lectureship and Black Tie dinner were held on Monday, March 10, 2014. This year the Department of Surgery invited alumni from the classes of 1984 and 1994 to share in the festivities held at the Harmonie Club in New York City. Nearly 100 faculty, residents and alumni joined together to commemorate Benjamin Park Jr., who was a resident of the surgical education program in 1968, and was killed in Korea serving his country in 1969. It was also an opportunity to celebrate the success of the surgical education program at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, and the achievements of the Department of Surgery. The guest speaker, who had given Surgical Grand Rounds earlier in the day, was Dr. Julie Ann Freischalg, MD, FACS, Vice Chancellor of Human Health Services, UC Davis Health System and Dean and Professor of Surgery, UC Davis School of Medicine, Sacramento, CA. The dinner was hosted by Fabrizio Michelassi, MD, Lewis Atterbury Stimson Professor and Chairman of Surgery and Surgeon-in-Chief, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. Alumni from the graduating classes of 1984 and 1994 were recognized and honored at the banquet dinner by Eugene Nowak, MD, an alumnus of our surgical residency program and a distinguished faculty member in the department of surgery at NYP/Weill Cornell.

The Benjamin S. Park, Jr. Visiting Professor Lectureship is supported by the Department of Surgery. The Department of Surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College established this Visiting Professor Lectureship in 1969 as a reminder of the importance of surgical education. Contributions are welcome and tax-deductible. Checks should be payable to the Department of Surgery, and mailed to: Ms. Karen Zipern
