The UW Department of Surgery introduced a new podcast to educate and entertain surgeons, medical trainees, and other people interested in the art and science of surgery. The Surgery Sett offers conversations with surgical leaders from the University of Wisconsin and across the nation about new ideas and innovations in the worldwide surgical community.
The series is hosted by Dr. Jonathan Kohler, a former journalist and assistant professor of surgery and pediatrics at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. His interviews with surgeons and other medical professionals who visit the University of Wisconsin, along with surgeons and researchers from the UW, will explore a wide range of healthcare and medical topics.
A new episode, running approximately 20 minutes, will be released every other week on Friday mornings. The series launched with the following six episodes:
Future episodes include interviews with Dr. Pauline Chen, author of the New York Times best-seller Final Exam; A Surgeon’s Reflections on Mortality; Dr. James Economou, professor of surgery at the University of California, Los Angeles and director of the Melanoma Program at UCLA Health; and Dr. Angela Gibson, a burn and trauma surgeon-scientist from the University of Wisconsin.
