American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Member Services

Membership in the American College of Surgeons (ACS) is an integral part of your profession. Whether you're still in training, or at the peak of your career, our top priority is providing value for you, our members—at every step.

Quality Programs

Improving the quality of surgical care leads to greater access for patients, fewer complications and better outcomes, thus lowering the cost of care. Our quality improvement programs have improved quality in trauma and cancer care, bariatric surgery, and in overall surgical care.


Educating and training surgeons remains integral across the entire spectrum of College activities. Rely on the ACS to be your premier source for surgical education and take advantage of a wide variety of resources appropriate for your learning needs.


ACS advocacy activities at the federal and state level represent the interests of you, the practicing surgeon, and your patients.  We encourage all surgeons to get involved in advocacy matters. Take action. Protect your patients and your profession.
