On behalf of the SSAT Resident and Fellow Education Committee, we would like to welcome you to SSAT "Residents Corner", a video-blog highlighting areas of interest for surgical trainees looking to focus on a career in gastrointestinal surgery.

This edition of the Society for Surgery of the Alimentary Tract (SSAT) Resident Corner features an interview of Dr Stephen R. T. Evans, current Executive Vice President for Medical Affairs and Chief Medical Officer for MedStar Health. He is the former Chair of the Department of Surgery at Georgetown University Hospital and is the current Chair of the American Board of Surgery (ABS). The following questions are asked and answered during this interview:
  1. What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning when your alarm goes off?
  2. What is your favorite memory from last week?
  3. What is your activity of choice outside of work?
  4. What is the accomplishment in your lifetime that means the most to you and why?
  5. What is your favorite operation: if you could only pick one to do every day for the rest of your career which would it be and why?
  6. Do you ever stop for a moment and consider the impact you have had on the field of surgery? What is your perception of what this has been or what do you hope it to be?
  7. What is your #1 goal for change in surgical education over the next year and why is this important?
  8. Is there anything on your bucket list in either your personal life or your career that you are willing to share?
