Carl W. Eberbach Lecture scheduled for June 13

May 30, 2014 College News - John L. Cameron, MD, the Alfred Blalock Distinguished Service Professor of Surgery at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, will deliver the 54th annual Eberbach Lecture on Friday, June 13, in the Froedtert Hospital Helfaer Auditorium. His presentation, William Stewart Halsted, Our Surgical Heritage, will begin at 4 p.m.

Dr. Cameron has had a long and distinguished career in alimentary tract surgery and has performed over 2,000 Whipple procedures, more than any other surgeon in the world. For 19 years, he served as the Chief of Surgery at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and under his leadership, the Hopkins pancreatic cancer program has made seminal contributions to all aspects of surgery for benign and malignant diseases of the pancreas.

The event will begin with a clinical case conference at 10 a.m. in Froedtert’s Helfaer Auditorium.

The annual lecture was named in the honor of Carl W. Eberbach, who was Professor and Chairman of the Department of Surgery at the Medical College of Wisconsin from 1953-1958. His leanings toward academic medicine were strong, and he maintained a vital interest in our medical school throughout his professional life in Milwaukee. The lectureship was established to bring leading educators in general surgery to the Medical College.
