    Dr. Gerald Burns Lecture

    Dr. Gerald Burns practiced general surgery at Dartmouth General Hospital for more than 20 years. He was instrumental in the establishment of the surgery department at the hospital and was Dartmouth General Hospitals’ first Chief of Surgery.

    Throughout his professional career he was committed to the education of his peers as well as to all members of the healthcare team. This commitment to learning provided the motivation for the establishment of the Dr. Gerald Burns Memorial Lecture Series that has occurred annually since 2002.

    Thank you to those who attended the 18th Annual Dr. Gerald Burns Lecture. Stay tuned for more information about this year’s lecture.
