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

Academy of Master Surgeon Educators

On behalf of the Steering Committee of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Academy of Master Surgeon Educators, welcome to the new webpage of the Academy. This webpage of the ACS website will be dynamic and informative and will encompass all major programs and activities of the Academy. In addition to providing information on the Academy’s mission, goals, membership, application and selection process, induction, leadership, and membership, a new section on Selected Educational Resources will serve as a repository of important peer-reviewed materials and documents, along with the Academy’s products. Future content in this section will include videos and multimedia presentations from the symposia and other programs sponsored by the Academy, and highlights of major events held under the aegis of the Academy. This webpage is the external face of the Academy and is accessible to Academy Members, ACS members, domestic and international surgeons, surgery residents, health care professionals, and other organizations and interested parties.

During the current Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, we will use the Academy’s webpage to share information on Academy activities related to the COVID-19 pandemic along with description of novel methods of teaching and assessment being used across the country during the COVID-19 surge. These COVID-19-related materials will be available on the Academy’s webpage of the ACS website as well as the ACS COVID-19 and Surgery microsite for public access. Going forward, new information and resources from the Academy will continue to be added to the webpage and should foster innovation and collaboration.

We are pleased to introduce the Editorial Board of the Academy’s webpage:
