Dr. Karen Brasel Elected to the American Board of Surgery
Dr. Karen Brasel has been appointed as a Director of the American Board of Surgery. Her term will start in June 2012.
The Directors of the American Board of Surgery are elected for a single six-year term from ABS nominating organizations or through an at-large process. They are distinguished surgeons in education, research, and practice in the United States; this is a very high honor and in recognition of Dr. Brasel's stature in American surgery and her many contributions to the fields of trauma, critical care medicine, and graduate medical education. Dr. Brasel is the third MCW faculty to be appointed to the ABS; following in the footsteps of Robert Condon and Jonathan Towne. ABS directors hold current time-limited certificates and receive no remuneration for their service. The ABS also has one public member, elected by open nomination.
