Past Mark W. Allam Lectures

The Mark W. Allam Lecture, presented at the ACVS Surgery Summit, is named for the Dean Emeritus of the School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, and co-founder of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons, Mark Whittier Allam. Dr. Allam was an avid proponent of the concept of "one medicine” - the idea that the similarities between human and animal medicine are great and that these two fields can benefit considerably from the discoveries made in each field.
