Medicine & Surgery has become extremely complex with fantastic advancements in Diagnostics, Procedures, Technology, and even Regulations.   Todays definitions of the terms:  advanced technology, monitoring, cardiac support, chemotherapy, reconstructions, emergency procedures, etc. are different than just 5 years ago.   Navigating the complex jungle of registrations, regulations, insurance, copayments, consultants, critical care units, telesurgery is frustrating for family, patients, quality reviewers, as well as physicians and trainees.   A rare look into this world will happen this coming Thursday at the Rotary Club of Houston, September 15, 2022 in Tony's Wine Cellar. Space is somewhat limited, so be sure to register early at the Rotary Club of Houston website.  Drs. Loor, Ramsey, and Savi of Baylor College of Medicine who lecture to young trainees and staff on these subjects will share with attendees on these challenges.   This is one of those "MUST ATTEND" events for all Rotarians individual and for their families.
