ACS Residents as Teachers and Leaders

ACS Residents as Teachers and Leaders Course

Virtual Residents as Teachers and Leaders Course 

We were very disappointed that last spring’s Residents as Teachers and Leaders Course was canceled due to the pandemic. But we have good news!

The ACS Division of Education will host a virtual Residents as Teachers and Leaders Course on November 20–22, 2020, with the same exemplary faculty. Even better news, there will be no cost to attend. (Note that this will be an interactive event and that it will not be recorded.)

Please note: This course is offered only to those currently training in a surgical residency program. Note, too, that seats are limited, and your active participation will be required.   

The course hours (Central Time) are:

  • Friday, November 20, 12:00–5:00 pm
  • Saturday, November 21, 12:00–4:45 pm
  • Sunday, November 22, 12:00–4:15 pm


Registration is now open to all surgical residents. Note that seats are limited and there is no cost to enroll. Again, this course will not be recorded, and active participation will be required. Attending all three days of the course will yield the maximum benefit to learners. 

Register now 

Save the Date for Next Year’s Course: April 9–11, 2021
