Lectureships and Special Events

Surgery

Throughout the course of the year, the Education Division hosts an array of Named Lectureships, delivered by nationally recognized experts in their respective field, and Invited Guest Lecturers from outside institutions. Most recently, the Claude Organ Lectureship was hosted by MUSC. Dr. Carla Pugh, M.D., Ph.D., invited lecturer, gave the talk “Signatures: What Can Sensors and Motion Tracking Tell Us About Surgical Performance?” at the 2017 Claude Organ Lecture.

Horace G. Smithy Lecture

The Horace G. Smithy Lectureship honors Dr. Smithy, a pioneer in the early days of cardiac surgery. Dr. Smithy was a young Assistant Professor of Surgery at MUSC who made medical history by successfully removing scar tissue from a heart valve of a young, incapacitated girl who had been given but a brief time to live.

The Kredel-Springs Lectureship honors Frederick E. Kredel, M.D. and Holmes B. Springs, M.D. for their contributions and personal dedication to resident education and continuing medical education. The Lectureship is made possible through an endowment created by donations from the Kredel and Springs families, colleagues and the Department of Surgery.
