What I Have Heard. True or Flase?

Is it true that you as surgeons have to conduct a certain amount of free surgerys per year? And why if there a reason for this ?

Pro bono surgery

False.  No surgeon is required to do pro bono work, but many do it voluntarily.  I personally like going on medical mission trips to help poverty-stricken people, but not everyone does.  It's a matter of personal preference.
