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

Clinical Congress 2021

While encouraged by recent measures to reduce the incidence of COVID-19, we also recognize that this positive trajectory may not yet be a predictable one. Therefore, this year’s American College of Surgeons (ACS) Clinical Congress will be a VIRTUAL event. Join us October 23–27 for Clinical Congress 2021. This virtual event offers important surgical education opportunities for medical professionals across all specialties and career stages.

Building on the success of last year’s first virtual Congress, we are confident we can again offer a best-in-class educational event for all attendees, presenters, and exhibitors. The program will focus on the latest advances in surgical science, practice, and education, all celebrated under this year’s theme, “Resilience in the Pursuit of Excellence.” Plans are well underway to present another robust five-day conference of educational offerings and guest lectures, along with our signature Opening Ceremony and Sunday evening Convocation—all will be remote activities.

Registration Is Open!

The Clinical Congress 2021 program addresses essential clinical and nonclinical content.

  • A compelling series of Named Lectures by world-renowned experts. 
  • Postgraduate Courses incorporating best practices in education and training. 
  • More than 105 Panel Sessions on timely, relevant subjects.
