In San Francisco this week (past), Columbia Neurosurgeon Dr. Donald Quest gave the prestigious Osler Lecture for Medical Students at the 82nd Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS).
The Osler Lecture is named after William Osler, a notable mentor for physicians and surgeons. His legacy is embodied by Dr. Quest, a mentor in the neurosurgical residency match program and an individual committed to the growth and improvement of the specialty.–from the 2014 AANS program.
In his talk titled Mentorship in Neurosurgery, Dr. Quest spoke about “the need for organized neurosurgery to continue to make every effort to not only attract the best and brightest to the field, but encourage them and support those who will make up the next generation of neurosurgeons.”
At the opening ceremonies to this 82nd annual meeting, Dr. Quest was given a commemorative plaque as the 2014 Olser Lecturer by William Couldwell, MD, PhD, FAANS, current President of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (image above).
Dr. Quest is the J. Lawrence Pool Professor of Neurological Surgery and neurosurgeon at the Spine Center at Columbia University Medical Center. He is the winner of the 2012 Harvey Cushing Medal and a past President of the AANS.
