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


Educating and training surgeons was the catalyst for founding the American College of Surgeons (ACS) in 1913 by Franklin H. Martin, MD, FACS, and today, 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. This page features the major initiatives of the Division of Education, and educational activities of the Trauma Programs and Cancer Programs. Practicing surgeons, surgery residents, and other members of the surgical team will find an array of exciting education resources and opportunities which are driven by the ACS mission: raise the standards of surgical practice and improve the quality of care for surgical patients. Learn more with ACS, and fuel your passion for lifelong learning.
