2013 Wylie Dinner
On Thursday, May 30th, 2013, The Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery hosted the 2013 Wylie Society Dinner at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in downtown San Francisco. This year marked the 50th Anniversary of Vascular Surgery Training at UCSF. Over 80 guests were treated to a spectacular spring San Francisco evening, which began with a wine tasting reception on the 40th Floor Patio. The dinner program consisted of talks on the evolution of Vascular Training, an overview of the UCSF Fellowship Program, and a look into the future of education in Vascular Surgery.
We hope that we can see you at next year’s Wylie Society meeting in Boston!
A message from Dr. Ronald Stoney, Professor Emeritus of Surgery:
"Hi, and thanks to all of you who attended the Vascular Meeting and our Wylie Society Dinner this year.
What an evening and stunning venue for the Wylie Society Dinner! I just want you to know how much it meant to me to enjoy an evening with so many colleagues – all about the Wylie heritage at UCSF. I thought it was organized well, and I had a chance to visit with many of you. Enjoying the time together with many of you was the highlight of my evening.
I thought the review of the 50 year-old legacy of the UCSF Vascular Division and Vascular Fellowship were special, as well as Surgical Specialist training in the future. The after dinner stories and comments brought back old memories, as well as some I had forgotten.
My sincere thanks to all of you for being there, despite a number of long journeys, that helped make this happen. Linda and I thoroughly enjoyed the time with all of you. There are many fond memories from the evening that will stay with me, and the handshakes, hugs and sharing our connections together was the icing on the cake."
