The Ferguson-Ottinger Endowed Fund for Surgical Residents at Mass General
The Department of Surgery was recently fortunate to receive a donation from Dr. Charles Ferguson, former Program Director of the General Surgery Residency who shaped the lives and careers of so many to create the Ferguson-Ottinger Endowed Fund for Surgical Residents at Mass General.
Charlie made this gift in honor of his late father, Dr. Ira Ferguson, a former MGH surgical resident, and Dr. Les Ottinger, a long time Program Director of Surgical Residency Program (preceding Charlie). The endowment will provide not only a visiting professor but also enhance the educational opportunities for residents beyond the walls of the Mass General.
