Dr. Montero Invited to Join Newest Academy of Master Surgeon Educators
Dr. Montero was invited to join the newest Academy of Master Surgeon Educators at the 104th Annual Clinical Congress of the American College of Surgeons

At the recent (Oct. 21-25) 104th Annual Clinical Congress of the American College of Surgeons, held in San Diego, California, our own Juan M. Montero II, MD, FACS, was in attendance along with his son Paul, Eastern Virginia Medical School '04 alumnus and Assistant Professor of Surgery at the University of Colorado Medical Center in Denver. This is his 40th year as ACS fellow. Much to his surprise, during the Virginia ACS Chapter-EVMS reception, his friend Dr. L.D. Britt pointed and blurted his invitation for him to join the newly launched organization of select surgeons. Academy of Master Surgeon Educators

Dr. Britt, who is ACS Past President, Professor and Chairman Department of Surgery, EVMS, is co-chair of the ACS Academy Steering Committee. This new "think tank" is designed to meet the Academy's mission of continually advancing the science and implementation of education across all surgical specialties through innovation and promotion of the highest achievements across the lifetime of surgeons. Applications will be sent to fellows at end of the year.

Dr. Montero’s son Paul was also thrilled to see his 4th-year surgical resident Dr. Yihan Lin receive the ACS Surgical Resident Volunteerism award. Paul was voted Teacher of the Year, College of Medicine, at the University of Colorado last year. He will apply for ACS fellowship to join the initiates next year in Boston. He was again the guest of his father, inaugural co-recipient of ACS Surgical Volunteerism award in 2003, at the annual black-tie dinner hosted by the ACS Board of Governors honoring the surgical volunteerism awardees, past and present.

Dr. Montero capped his week's Memorable Magic Moments [MMM] with his presentation of Montero Medical Missions' ongoing domestic project, Health Fair for Veterans, during the Global Surgery Engagement session.
