He sees the potential to offer clinical services to the North Shore and the VA; Dr. DeCamp looks forward to offering ad- vanced training in general thoracic surgery and he is anxious to add lung transplantation to the Northwestern transplant portfolio. Academically, his plans include mentoring Dr. Alberto de Hoyos, whose work in minimally invasive surgery, advanced therapeutic endoscopy and robot-assisted procedures is further enhanced by his advanced training in both pulmonary medicine and thoracic surgery. The division will continue to provide individualized treatment plans emphasizing minimally invasive surgery. Bringing this poten- tial to fruition will be a natural outcome of Dr. DeCamp‘s proven ability to build the kind of patient- focused, multi-disciplinary teams necessary to provide world-class care for those with thoracic can- cers, swallowing disorders, complex airway diseases and advanced lung disease. With the development of these programs, Dr. DeCamp will make Northwestern the only academic medical center in our geographic area with comprehensive and integrated research, educational and clinical programs providing diagnostic, staging and therapeutic interventions which will meet our patients‘ and referring physicians‘ needs in a culture of investigation and innovation.

  • 4. The Surgical ScopeResearch UpdateOur goal three years ago was to increase federal awards by 50% over a 5-year timeline and advance the Feinberg Departmentof Surgery into the top 20 on a national level. Over the past 3 years, federal research awards have increased 100% among ourfaculty members. According to the Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research of released rankings of medical schools accordingto NIH funding (March 2010, for the last three federal fiscal yearsFeinberg School of Medicine Department of Surgery rose to a rank of 38th in 2007, and to the 27th position in 2008, and justlast year rose to 19th in the United States.The research enterprise within the Department of Surgery has had its most productive year ever. For the period of 9/1/09 –6/15/10, the Department of Surgery submitted 63 new proposals valued at over $49 million total costs. During the sameperiod, the Department of Surgery received 26 new awards (federal, non-federal and industry), totaling $6.528 million, includ-ing $5.43M in federal awards. This will further enhance our research ranking in 2010. The department has also received newfunding on 27 clinical trials and industry agreements.Federal Awards: 14Total Direct Costs awarded FY10 = $5,434,550Non-Federal Awards: 12 For detailed award information, please seeTotal Costs awarded FY10 = $1,094,326 pages 19-21Total Awards: $6,528,876Resident involvement in research has been very strong.

  • 5. Issue 5Surgical Education UpdateMedical Student Programs The first year of the newly designed clerkship was very well received by both students and faculty. Under the leadership of Dr. Julia Corcoran, Clerkship Director, and Susan Santacaterina, MHPE, Associate Director, the clerkship now offers addi- tional clinical sites and rotations, as well as an increase in faculty. Clinical sites now include inpatient and outpatient rota- tions at MacNeal Hospital, the VA Hospital and Children‘s Memorial Hospital. Faculty within Cardiothoracic, Transplant, and Plastics have begun working with students. Students have thoroughly enjoyed these new experiences, one student remarked, ―MacNeal was a great rotation, a busy service with opportunities to be very involved in patient care and learn a lot about general surgery.‖ Another student said that the best part of the surgery clerkship was, ―General Surgery at the Veterans Hospital - I loved working with the patient population and felt like I had a great opportunity to get involved with the team.‖ The clerkship was well represented at the annual Association for Surgical Education conference this year. Dr. Nabil Issa and Dr. Julia Corcoran each had studies accepted for presentations. Also, Dr. Corcoran won the 2010 Phillip J. Wolfson Outstanding Teaching Award. Jeffrey Hotaling was the recipient of the 2009 Julius Conn Award, an annual award given to the best performing surgery clerkship student. New 4th Year Boot Camp: Dr. Nabil Issa, Dr. Julia Corcoran, and Susan Santacaterina developed a new curriculum for a fourth year surgical elective described as ―Surgical Boot Camp‖. This course is designed to prepare the 4 th year student for the rigors of the surgical internship. Examples of learning activities include ―Simulated OR Patient Pages,‖ patient management challenges typically encountered by PGY-1 residents and technical skills development in the N-Case labora- tory. The course was approved by the NUFSCOM Curriculum Committee and will be offered as a Spring elective in 2011.Resident Programs Edelstone-Bendix DayThe 2010 Edelstone-Bendix Residents‘ Day was held on Friday, June 18th, 2010. The day‘s events featured presentations byresidents and fellows and showcased their outstanding work in both clinical and basic science research. This year‘s guest lec-turer and scientific paper judge was David L. Dunn, M.D, Ph.D., Vice President for Health Sciences, Professor of Surgery, Micro-biology and Immunology at the University at Buffalo, SUNY. The Edelstone-Bendix Day concluded with the graduation dinnerheld at the Omni Chicago Hotel on Michigan Avenue.

What is considered the New Flexner Report was released this month by the same Carne- gie Foundation – the report is entitled ―Educating Physicians: A Call for Reform of Medical School and Residency‖ and was written by Molly Cooke, David Irby and Bridge O‘Brien. The report (in book format) describes the current status of medical education, high- lights innovations and advancements practiced at various medical schools, and recommends future directions. We are proud to state that the authors chose only two surgery programs to visit and ob- serve their work, and our department of surgery was one of the two. The authors, having spent two days in our department, highlighted in the book a) innovations such as the surgery clerkship‘s longitu- dinal outpatient clinic format, b) our apprenticeships, and c) describes the role of our department‘s educator. They also referenced one of our educational research publications. It is a positive reflec- tion on our department‘s educational programs to have innovative features acknowledged in the ―Flexner Report 2010‖. Page 7

  • 11. Issue 5Organ Transplantation Surgery UpdateLate 2009 and early 2010 have been very productive in all aspects for the Division of Organ Transplantation. Grant funding has contin-ued to grow dramatically, existing collaborations such as NUTORC are experiencing significant success, and new collaborations andproposals are off to promising starts. Additionally, the clinical, administrative, and clinical research staff have relocated to a new24,000 square foot space. With ever-growing basic, clinical, and translational research, a leading clinical program in volume, out-comes, and innovation, top fellowships, and a new space to support further growth, transplant at Northwestern continues to shore upits position among the top few academic transplant centers in the world. From left to right: Dr. Michael Abecassis, Dr. Joe Leventhal, Dr. Anton Skaro, Dr. Juan Caicedo, Dr. Daniela Ladner, Dr. Jonathon Fryer, Dr. Talia Baker, Dr. Dixon KaufmanResearch: Last year, transplant faculty received four major (>$1M in total funding) grants. Work has begun on all four. First, Drs. Mi-chael Abecassis, Daniela Ladner, and Talia Baker have successfully renewed Northwestern‘s Adult-to-Adult Living Donor Liver (A2ALL)consortium grant. Only nine transplant centers were funded by NIH for this consortium, which has decided to focus its second five-yearcycle in part on patient safety and quality of life issues, which align perfectly with the Northwestern University Transplant OutcomesResearch Consortium (NUTORC) in the Comprehensive Transplant Center. Dr. Ladner is co-chairing the committees on safety and qual-ity of life, assuring Northwestern will be a leader in key aspects of this consortium. Additionally, Drs. Abecassis, John Friedewald, andJosh Levitsky were funded by NIH to lead a consortium in the CTOT renewal (Northwestern was a participating consortium site in thefirst round of funding.). In collaboration with the Scripps Research Institute and industry, the grant focuses on genomic and proteomicmarkers of acute rejection and chronic kidney injury (CAN/IFTA). Dr. Dixon Kaufman was awarded a grant as a lead site on the NIHclinical islet transplantation consortium, where Northwestern has performed the most transplants and achieved the greatest numberof insulin-independent patients. Last, Dr. Abecassis, Dr. Bing Ho, and Luke Preczewski were funded by a pharmaceutical company todevelop software in collaboration with the EDW and NUBIC for integrating transplant data. In addition to these four grants of more than$1M, the division received many small and medium-sized grants, and continues to rapidly expand its research enterprise. The divisionis wrapping up a joint recruitment with the center for genetic medicine of a computational biologist from a leading center to start inAugust. This will allow expansion of the division‘s genomics research.Education: The division continues its efforts both to run top clinical fellowships at Northwestern and to shape the national curriculumfor transplant surgery. Additionally, the program recruited two new post-doctoral fellows to its NIH-funded T32 training program. Onewill work with Dr. Zeeshan Butt in quality of life research in transplant patients and the other will work with Dr. Xunrong Luo in trans-plant immunology. Colleen Jay, MD, the first graduate of our T32 outcomes research fellowship returned to the clinical residency slothaving established an impressive record of peer-reviewed publication. Our surgical fellowship matched two fellows for the 2011 aca-demic year. Nationally, more than half the transplant surgery fellowship slots went unfilled, so the fact that our program matched bothslots speaks to the excellent reputation it has earned.Clinical Care: The division continued its tremendous clinical success, drawing press attention for its successful performance of an eight-way domino living donor kidney transplant, the largest ever at a single center. And in May, the program relocated to a new 24,000square foot clinic and administrative space. This move brought together clinicians and clinical researchers from six different locationson campus to consolidate care, and it significantly expanded the clinical capacity to allow for growth. The clinical program has main-tained its status as the top program in Illinois for all organs and a top-five program nationally in terms of volume, while maintainingexcellent outcomes. The living donor liver transplantation program has been reinvigorated since Dr. Talia Baker took over leadershipand has returned to being one of the top two programs nationally by volume. Aligned with the A2ALL research effort and in light of thechallenges of organ availability in Illinois, we expect careful growth in this area of the program to make this available to carefully se-lected patients with end-stage liver disease.

  • 12. The Surgical ScopePlastic Surgery UpdatePlastic surgery has had an active year. Dr. Mustoe is stepping down as Chief after 19 years but will continue to be involved inclinical and academic activities within the department.Research: On the research front, Dr. Mustoe has been awarded a one year grant totaling $300,000 from the Department ofDefense to look at the behavior of stem cells in wound healing, with an anticipated second year of funding. Dr. JordanSteinberg, a third year resident won a national competition to receive one of three $50,000 grants from the Plastic SurgeryEducation Foundation. His proposal is to study stem cells as a potential therapy for ischemia reperfusion injury in a rabbit earmodel. Dr. Galiano continues his clinical wound healing efforts with grant support from Excaliard totaling $600,000. Dr. JohnKim has received an unrestricted grant totaling $35,000 to perform clinical studies on dermal matrix in breast reconstructionand industry grants form Covidien and Mentor totaling $100,000. Grant submissions on scarring as part of a NIH P50 havealso been submitted.Education: On the education side, the rotation at the Veterans Administration Hospital has been a success under the leader-ship of Dr. Gregory Dumanian. Already, there is a several month backlog for reconstructive hand, limb, and body surgery. Drs.John Kim and Thomas Mustoe will also begin to work there in the late summer of 2010. The junior residents have been moreintegrated within the structure of the residency this year, with a new microsurgery skills course and a lecture series designedfor them. The match successfully concluded with the addition of Michael Gart from Brown University and Jordan Sumanasfrom Emory University and Georgia Tech where she completed a PhD in Biomedical Engineering. We are extremely enthusias-tic about both as they excelled in medical school and were highly recruited candidates from programs around the country.Clinical: From a clinical perspective, the Division has rebounded substantially from the economic downturn in 2009 and is hav-ing a solid year. At Childrens Hospital a search is underway for a new Chief, and the service remains robust as a result of thework by Drs. Julia Corcoran and Frank Vicari.

These involve video-conferencing of clinical procedures as well as more conventional re-broadcast of ―classroom-style‖ presentations. Each project brings new technology to the Department of Surgery and helpsSurgery IS support its role as a partner within the Department.Projects include:Emergency Department (ED) re-design to take advantage of NU standard tools. ED and Surgery IS are piloting desktop,―network-friendly‖ video-conferencing to facilitate education on and off campus. The tools involved are low-cost and take ad-vantage of web-based communication. Any location that can open a browser and see the web can participate in a full two-waysession with picture and audio. Likewise, a remote user at home or on the road, connected by an average DSL network canconnect and join the conference.Gastroenterology (GI) procedure room re-design for conferencing and training. The GI Division together with Surgery IS is de-signing new procedure rooms to afford physicians three dedicated means of connecting: 1.) room to room video communica-tion for intra-procedure discussion; 2.) video-conferencing to the outside world for education/training; and 3.) dedicated videoconferencing to the DoS video facility in the Arkes Pavilion. Arkes Pavilion video-conferencing is done over a closed fiber net-work offering High Definition presentation of three simultaneous streams of information: field, scope, and instruments. Proce-dure video and stills will also be captured for research as well as for clinical review by members of the Department of Surgery.Other Department notes:Tom Kmiecik was named co-author on ―Hormonal Criteria for Assessment of Menopause: Role of Anti-Mullerian Hormone‖ -- apaper for the 33rd Annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium.Phil Poland completed the first of two Cisco CNA certification exams, and is now certified as a CCENT.

  • 17. Issue 5Philanthropy Spotlight A Most Fitting Honor Gerald Ujiki, MD To serve on the faculty at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is a great opportunity, one which represents the chance to be a part of an inclusive, diverse and excellent academic community. Gerald Ujiki, MD, joined the Northwestern community in 1955, earning his bachelor‘s degree from the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences. He continued at Northwestern University, earning his doctorate degree and completing his residency at the medical school before joining the faculty of the Department of Surgery, where he remains today as associate professor of clinical surgery. Over the last 40 years, Dr. Ujiki has cultivated an enduring bond with the department and University, and so, it was most fitting when Dr. Soper proposed that he be honored with an endowed lectureship fund. The Gerald Ujiki, MD, Lectureship Fund will honor Dr. Ujiki‘s leadership and teaching excellence by focusing on excit- ing advances in surgical education. The annual lectures will bring leading surgical educators from around the world to present at Northwestern University, interact with students and faculty members, and provide input into ongoing studies. Thanks to the generosity of colleagues—such as the Northwestern Surgical Associates—fellow alumni, and grateful patients, the Gerald Ujiki, MD, Lectureship Fund has received contributions and commitments to permanently en- dow the fund. Endowed lectures exist in perpetuity, forever advancing education as they honor the legacy of those for and by whom they are named.
