ACS Comprehensive General Surgery Review Course

July 28–31, 2016
Chicago, IL

Course Objectives and Description

The ACS Comprehensive General Surgery Review Course provides a three-and-a-half-day intensive review of the essential content areas in general surgery. Expert faculty will use a combination of didactic and case-based formats to create an efficient review while enhancing understanding and retention. Self-assessment materials, such as pre- and posttests, also will be used. In addition, following the course, monthly review modules will be provided electronically in August, September, October, and November. These modules will address content beyond what is provided in the course, supply any needed updates, help keep participants engaged in learning, and offer a forum for continued interaction with faculty. The course will help fulfill the requirements for Maintenance of Certification, Part 2, and should be helpful in preparing for recertification examinations. Self-assessment will be available.
