SLS Appoints 23rd President

23rd-presThe Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons (SLS), an organization focused on multi-specialty minimally invasive surgery, chose Dr. Maurice R. Chung, a clinical professor of OB/GYN at the University of Toledo School of Medicine and an adjunct professor of pharmacy at Ohio Northern University, to become its 23rd president. Chung is also active in universities of medicine throughout China.

The first of two themes of Chung’s presidential year include examining international surgical methods and learning new surgical techniques from other countries.

“We can learn from our colleagues around the world,” Chung said. “SLS has so many international connections and meetings throughout the world, that we gain from those perspectives and benefit from their knowledge. They benefit from us as well.”

The new president officially began his position on September 6, 2015.

Chung received his medical degree and completed his residency at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston. He was nominated to be the chief resident during his OB/GYN residency training at Albany Medical Center in New York, completing the standard four-year OB/GYN residency training in an accelerated pace of three years. He is board-certified and a Fellow of American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. The Accreditation Council of Gynecologic Endoscopy (A.C.G.E.) certified Chung in 1996 as an Advanced Laparoendoscopic Surgeon.

The Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons (SLS), a 501(c)(3) organization, is the nation’s leading group of multi-specialty surgeons, including general surgery, urology, OB-GYN and others. SLS advocates for minimally invasive surgery and improved surgical outcomes for all these specialties. It is a voluntary, nonprofit membership organization of over 6,000 surgeons.
