I am new faculty at Rhode Island Hospital in the Division of Trauma and Surgical Critical Care. Management of all kinds of surgical infections has been a core of my training and will be for my practice going forward. Our center sees a high volume of a variety of these issues, such as necrotizing soft tissue infections. I applied to join the Surgical Infection Society as part of an effort to put this volume to good use in the furthering of our field and to learn from all the experience contained within this organization.
