APDS Statement on Social Injustice – March, 2021

As surgery residency program directors, we stand in solidarity with our Asian and Pacific Islander program directors, trainees, colleagues, families and friends as we continue this critical fight against racism. We encourage all program directors to continue to provide support, ask tough questions, lend an ear and offer safe forums for discussion to your residents, your departments and your leadership.  Be vocal.  Be engaged.  Ensure zero tolerance toward ignorance and hatred.
