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

Academy of Master Surgeon Educators

Academy of Master Surgeon Educators

In October 2014, the ACS Division of Education presented a proposal to the ACS Board of Regents to establish an ACS Academy of Master Surgeon Educators and the Regents approved this proposal unanimously. The aim of the new ACS Academy of Master Surgeon Educators is to recognize and assemble a cadre of Master Surgeon Educators of national and international renown who will work closely with the ACS Division of Education to advance the science and practice of avant garde surgical education and training.  

The goals of this Academy will include defining megatrends in surgical education and training; steering advances in the field; fostering innovation and collaboration; supporting faculty development and recognition; and underscoring the critical importance of surgical education and training in the changing milieu of health care. Members of the Academy will be selected through a rigorous peer-review process, and induction into this Academy will be a very high honor. Members of the Academy will be expected to engage actively in activities to address the aforementioned goals. Membership in the Academy will be open to Master Surgeon Educators from across the surgical specialties.
