Isidore Cohn, Jr. – James D. Rives Surgical Society Membership
1542 Tulane Avenue
New Orleans, Louisiana 70112

To the Membership:

The 52nd annual Cohn-Rives conference is scheduled for March 11-12, 2016. The visiting professor will be Daniel Scott, MD, FACS, Professor of Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center.

Dr. Scott is a son of the city and a graduate of our medical school. He is currently the Frank H. Kidd Jr. MD Distinguished Professor of Surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. He serves as the Vice Chair for Education and as the General Surgery Residency Program Director. He is the principal investigator on over fifty grants, most involving minimally invasive surgery, simulation, and surgical education. He has authored nearly forty books or book chapters, one hundred and sixteen peer-reviewed publications, and holds four patents. He is a nationally recognized leader in the fields of Minimally Invasive Surgery and Surgical Education. We are fortunate to have him returning to New Orleans as the Cohn-Rives Professor this year.

The annual gala/banquet will be held Friday evening, March 11th at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in New Orleans which will be the host hotel. The scientific program and resident presentations will be held at the state of the art, LSU Human Development Center, at 411 S. Prieur Street on campus.

The majority of the program will begin on Friday morning, lasting throughout the day, and the residents’ presentations will start Saturday morning at 8:00 A.M. The quizzical titles allude to the content and the presenters will attempt to “stump the visiting professor”. The Members of the Cohn-Rives Society are encouraged to share their experience and expertise on any and all of the presentations. CME credit has been arranged for both days through the Louisiana State Medical Society and Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center in Baton Rouge.

Please reserve time to join us to celebrate the 52nd anniversary of the Cohn-Rives Society for this special event that now embarks on a journey toward a century.
Take time to enjoy New Orleans, hopefully with beautiful spring weather, a fabulous history and world renowned restaurants.
