The International Center for Professional Development (ICPD) is cognizant of its duty to honor those who made substantial contributions to advancement of healthcare and medical education in Armenia. The ICPD is proud to be the organizer of the Virtual Symposium on Updates on Pediatric Surgery, dedicated to Professor of Pediatric Surgery, Dr. Albert Vanyan, who stood at the origins of the formation of modern pediatric surgery in Armenia since 1965. He had a great contribution to the formation of children's surgical services (general surgery, thoracic surgery, neonatal surgery, urology, orthopedics and traumatology, neurosurgery) in the country, working at the newly established Yerevan Children's Hospital (now the Surb Astvatsamayr Medical Center), where he worked until the end of his surgical and teaching career. He passed away in summer of 2022 at his 90th.
Updates on Pediatric Surgery is designed for both practicing, in-training pediatric surgeons, general surgeons and non-surgical physicians interested in the pediatric surgical field. This online webinar will be conducted by collaboration of pediatric surgeons from Washington DC and Armenia.
