John plans to continue a career in general surgery with a focus in minimally invasive surgery. He is excited to utilize the professional growth he has gained throughout his Global Surgery Fellowship to further engage in health system strengthening work where he hopes to develop innovative ideas to decrease barriers to surgical healthcare amongst the most vulnerable populations throughout the world.
