Four surgical residents from Cedars-Sinai gave three scientific forum podium presentations and three posters at the annual meeting of the American College of Surgeons last month in Washington, D.C.

Halley Vora, MD, Ara Ko, MD, Monica Jain, MD, and Navpreet Dhillon, MD, represented Cedars-Sinai at the annual gathering, which drew more than 12,000. The scientific forum is one of the most prestigious venues for research presentations in the surgical world.

"We are very proud of the commitment to excellent academic research by our residents and faculty," said Rodrigo F. Alban, MD, associate director of the General Surgery Residency Program at Cedars-Sinai. "Strong resident participation from this institution continues to thrive and is now being recognized by leaders in different surgical specialties at the college level."

Founded in 1913 to raise the standards of surgical practice and care for patients, the American College of Surgeons is the largest organization of surgeons in the world, with more than 80,000 members.
