Surgical Chairs Playbook - Hardcopy

The American College of Surgeons and the Society of Surgical Chairs (SSC) have released the Surgical Chairs Playbook to help current and future surgeon leaders feel more confident and more easily navigate their career progression.

The Playbook features innovative leadership strategies, evidence-based practices, personal experiences, and advice authored by more than 80 current surgical chairs. It is organized into four sections: Managing Missions, Managing Oneself, Managing People, and Managing Business; within each section, the content is structured in a question-and-answer format, providing readers the opportunity to quickly identify topics that may be of particular interest.

The Playbook’s four surgeon editors are Robert S. D. Higgins, MD, MSHA, FACS, president of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and executive vice-president of Mass General Brigham in Boston, MA; Jeffrey B. Matthews, MD, FACS, Dallas B. Phemister Professor of Surgery and chair of the Department of Surgery at UChicago Medicine in IL; Todd K. Rosengart, MD, FACS, professor and chair of the Department of Surgery at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX; and Sandra L. Wong, MD, MS, FACS, William N. and Bessie Allyn Professor of Surgery and chair of the Department of Surgery at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and the Geisel School of Medicine in Lebanon, NH.
