What is SurgeonMasters?

SurgeonMasters is a continuing medical education company focused on delivering medical education, strategies and techniques overlooked or underemphasized in traditional medical training that improve practice performance, surgeon wellness and ultimately, patient outcomes.

What to Expect from a SurgeonMasters Meetup:  

SurgeonMasters educates, supports and empowers surgeons to practice with less frustration and greater control as you evolve a satisfying, sustainable and thriving career.

SurgeonMasters Meetups use Education, Support and Empowerment to:

  • Better control our own future
  • Learn, grow and perform at our best
  • Limit judgement of ourselves and others
  • Foster a positive attitude
  • Inspire others to do the same
