TUESDAY, JULY 30, 2019 PHYSICIANS: Yesterday's Physician Social at the UCSD Faculty Club in La Jolla proved to be both a fascinating and insightful experience. Dr. Stuart Jamieson gave an exclusive lecture on his new book, “Close to the Sun: The Journey of a Pioneering Heart Surgeon.” SDCMS co-sponsored this event with the City Club of San Diego. Dozens of physicians attended and enjoyed Dr. Jamieson's talk. Dr. Nick Yphantides, a member of the San Diego County Medical Society's Executive Committee, praised Jamieson's pioneering work and described being overcome with emotion by the experience when he was scrubbed in as a medical student on the first heart lung transplant conducted at UCSD, which Dr. Jamieson performed.
