The 2019 Randall W. Powell Endowed Memorial Lectureship in Pediatric Surgery, hosted by the University of South Alabama department of surgery, will feature Shawn D. St. Peter, M.D., surgeon-in-chief of the department of surgery and professor of pediatric surgery at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine.

St. Peter will present the first lecture, titled “Training, Medical Decision Making and Autonomy While Minimizing Variation Through Protocols,” on Sept. 5 at 4:30 p.m. at the Strada Patient Care Center. His second lecture titled “Equipoise, Innovation and the Role of Comparative Studies” will take place on Sept. 6 at 7 a.m. at the USA Health University Hospital second floor conference room.

The lectureship is named in honor of Randall Powell, M.D., former professor of surgery and pediatrics at the University College of Medicine, who passed away in 2017. As a pediatric surgeon, Powell belonged to a small group of surgeons who trained beyond general surgery residency in order to care for neonates and children with all the complex congenital defects with the understanding of the different physiology of the growing child. While at USA, Powell was a professor in the department of surgery and director of the division of pediatric surgery.

Both lectures are CME accredited. For more information, contact the USA department of surgery at (251) 445-8230.
