Please plan on joining us April 15 - 18, 2015 in exciting Westlake View for the 35th Annual meeting of the Surgical Infection Society
The SIS is dedicated to educating members and providing educational opportunities to future researchers and practitioners.
SIS greatly appreciates the tremendous support from our sponsors!
Although the treatment of infection maintains a very high priority, prevention of surgical infections is equally important. The SIS is dedicated to educating all members of the clinical healthcare team as well as providing educational opportunities to future researchers and practitioners through the SIS research fellowship programs.
Surgical Infections provides comprehensive and authoritative information on the biology, prevention, and management of post-operative infections. Original articles cover the latest advancements, new therapeutic management strategies, and translational research that is being applied to improve clinical outcomes and successfully treat post-operative infections.
The SIS is also an organization that embraces both clinical and basic science researchers, bringing real meaning to the buzzword “translational”.
Please plan on joining us on April 15, 2015 in Westlake Village, CA for the 35th Annual Meeting of the Surgical Infection Society. The meeting format is designed to facilitate interaction between presenters and SIS members as well as provided an educational opportunity.

I applied for membership in the Surgical Infection Society due to my interest in infections and nutrition in surgical and trauma patients. I am also interested in antibiotic stewardship. I believe it is a good organization to be active in given my interests and my previous career in pharmacy. I am also interested in meeting other practitioners with similar interests from around the country. I would like to become active in the Therapeutics and Guidelines committee.

Support surgical infections research.
As we continue our education section we have added a CASE OF THE MONTH, highlighting cases specific to surgical infectious disease. We also continue our review of the presentation and management of Infected Artificial Urinary Sphincters (AUS). Although targeted at residents, this is applicable to all general surgeons in practice.
