[Perspectives] Kjetil Søreide: rising young surgeon, adept with pen and scalpel

Chairs in surgery seldom arrive early in Norway; recipients are often aged at least 50 years. Kjetil Søreide, Professor of Surgery and a consultant gastrointestinal surgeon at Stavanger University Hospital, in Stavanger, Norway, was granted his in 2011. At the age of just 34 years he became the youngest person ever to be appointed to a Norwegian surgical chair. So what propelled him through this age-related ceiling? Professor Nils Erik Gilhus, a neurologist and head of the University of Bergen’s Department of Clinical Medicine where Søreide also works, points to the key factor.
