APDS: The Listserve for Surgery Program Directors
A listserve is basically an e-mail distribution system. In this case, when a subscribed individual wishes to post a message to all other subscribed members of the APDS, he or she simply sends a message to the list address.
PLEASE NOTE: Effective February 2003 this list embraces over 400 Program Directors, Coordinators, and other authorized users. Please keep in mind that this audience will be reading your messages when you are about to hit the “send” key. The server then automatically mails out that message to all subscribed individuals. Said individuals may then reply to that message, and in turn that response is sent out to all subscribed individuals (of course by changing the “To” line on the response one may also generate a private e-mail message to the originator of the that first message).
