Dr. Hugh A. Walters and the Department of Surgery

Dr. Hugh A. Walters graduated from the University of Florida College of Medicine in 2004.  He became a resident in the Department of Surgery but passed away in 2008.  His strong humanistic qualities resulted in special posthumous recognition by the Chapman Chapter for the Gold Humanism Honor Society.  His commitment to humanism also was recognized by the Department of Surgery, which created a Humanism award presented to a surgery resident every year since 2009.
