The ACS Surgical History Group (ACSSHG) was organized at a breakfast meeting at Clinical Congress 2013. The group was formed with the conviction that an awareness of how surgeons and surgery have evolved can add richness to our lives and serve as a guide to the future.
One of the group’s initial goals was to make surgical history an integral part of Clinical Congress by sponsoring events such as a poster competition, a breakfast presentation, and a panel session.
