The Layton Rikkers Surgical Society is proud to celebrate the Forward Award on behalf of the University of Wisconsin Department of Surgery. This award recognizes outstanding alumni contributions by current or former residents, faculty, and fellows of the University of Wisconsin Department of Surgery. Nominations are typically due in August and reviewed by a selection committee.
The Forward Award is presented annually, in fall, at a special alumni society dinner held during the American College of Surgeons Clinical Congress. More information will be available about the 2023 award nomination and event soon.
