ACVS Foundation
Honored Mentor

Charles E. DeCamp


Charlie told us he wasn’t going to try to teach us every surgical technique during residency; instead he hoped to teach us how to be caring doctors and lifelong students of surgery. A teacher when we needed a teacher, a task master when we needed a task master, a colleague when we needed a colleague. But most importantly, a true friend when we needed a true friend. Thank you, Charlie.

ACVS mentorship is a highly privileged relationship. I am sure I have taken away far more professionally, from the observations and activities of these fine young people, than I have ever given back to them. Of course, I have tried to see what each of them truly needs. That’s the rub.
