Greetings UW Surgery Alumni


Henry Harkins Surgical Society

Dr. Henry Harkins, the first chairman of the University of Washington's Department of Surgery, established the Henry Harkins Surgical Society in 1955. Membership is by invitation only and is extended to all graduating residents and fellows of the Department of Surgery, as well as active faculty members. The goals of the Society are to establish and maintain a sense of unity among the members, provide a means to disseminate the surgical and personal accomplishments of the individual members, and support the UW surgical residents in their surgical training.

We encourage you to support the residents and department educational activities by maintaining your membership in this Society. Please use this site to update your name and location in the directory, pay dues, make donations, and RSVP for upcoming events. You can now use your credit card to pay online here.

Welcome to our department alumni pages, where you can access the Harkins Society events calendar.

We encourage you to support department educational activities by maintaining your membership in the Henry N. Harkins Surgical Society. The minimal annual fee ensures that you will receive information on CME courses, lectures, and banquets; our quarterly department newsletter Surgery Synopsis and our annual report on Research in the Department of Surgery.
