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

Mastery in General Surgery Program

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) has developed a program for new surgeons who have completed residency and are entering into the practice of general surgery. The Mastery in General Surgery (Mastery) Program will support the transition to independent practice in general surgery through:

  • Building autonomy, decision-making, and clinical skills
  • Developing experience in practice management, leadership, and quality improvement
  • Learning the business of medicine
  • Launching your career in general surgery
