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

Owen H. Wangensteen Scientific Forum Program

Abstracts submitted under this program were reviewed and selected for presentation by the Scientific Forum Committee. The Scientific Forum program provides a platform for scientific and surgical researchers across all levels of training and experience, including junior scientific investigators—surgery residents, medical students, surgeons who have recently completed their training—to present their original research work before a national audience for the first time. More than 900 abstracts will be presented Monday through Thursday.

In addition to the traditional oral presentations, the Forum is offering “Quick Shot” abstract presentations (less than four minutes in length) in select sessions. 


All poster presentations will be in electronic format and available for viewing throughout Clinical Congress, including Thursday.
