Title: Excelsior Surgical Society: Achieving Surgical Readiness: Where Are We Now and Where Are We Going?
Date and Time of Session: Sunday, October 22: 7:00 am - 4:30 pm
Description: The U.S. Department of Defense Military Health System and the American College of Surgeons formed a strategic relationship in 2014, officially known as the Military Health System Strategic Partnership American College of Surgeons (MHSSPACS). The mission of the MHSSPACS is to provide more comprehensive and advanced surgical education for all military surgeons. In order to maximize the potential of this partnership, the Excelsior Surgical Society was reestablished in 2015 as a mechanism to foster ties between civilian and military surgeons at the annual ACS Clinical Congress. The Excelsior Surgical Society will leverage the “lessons learned” and currently being “learned” as we move forward in the 21st century. The 3rd Excelsior Surgical Society meeting will be held on Sunday, October 22, in conjunction with the ACS Clinical Congress 2016, October 22-26 in San Diego, California. The theme is “Achieving Surgical Readiness: Where Are We Now & Where Are We Going?” and will feature a panel of military surgical consultants, prominent surgeons and the Third Fleet Surgeon of the US Navy. The scholarly forum will include the military’s Region 13 Trauma Paper Competition and a wide-variety of abstract presentations with the aim of showcasing the best surgical research performed in the United States military. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with surgical leaders and fellowship program directors in the civilian sector. The Major John P. Pryor Lecture will be delivered as the keynote address. Please join us in San Diego, California and help us enhance military medicine now and in the future.
