An Interview with Dr. Gary Vitale, University of Louisville
This month, the Society for Surgery of the Alimentary Tract (SSAT) Resident Corner had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Gary Vitale, Professor of Surgery at the University of Louisville. We had the opportunity to hear his thoughts about the following questions:
Can you describe the value of research years spent abroad with A. Cuschieri?
How did the training opportunity with C. Ligoury and J. Perrisat evolve in France?
Can you discuss your opportunity to train leaders in ERCP in the developing world form El Salvador to Vietnam?
How did you first start to develop the innovation of transgastric pancreatic necrosectomy?
Can you discuss the value of surgical endoscopy fellowships and the need to train surgeons in ERCP?
Can you describe the urgency for surgeon training in endoscopic ultrasound and your inspiration to retrain in EUS at age 64?
