Register today for the ACS Leadership & Advocacy Summit 2023, April 15–18 at the Grand Hyatt Washington, DC Hotel. The Summit offers comprehensive and specialized sessions to provide ACS members, leaders, and advocates with topics focused on effective surgeon leadership, as well as interactive advocacy training with coordinated visits to Congressional offices.
Are you interested in improving your public presence through media interviews and on social media? Surgeons have an important perspective to share with the public on many topics ranging from surgery to research to advocacy to quality patient care. Whether you’re active on social media, regularly participate in media interviews or are new to both, this session will give you the tools and skills to effectively communicate your message and leave a positive impression.
Join the ACS Division of Integrated Communications for an interactive media training and social media development workshop where you will practice real-world media scenarios and explore how to shape your narrative on social media. Pre-registration is required, and capacity is limited.
This plenary session will provide an overview of advanced negotiation concepts, strategies, and tactics when negotiating with organizations in the context of medical employment. The first part will explore recognizing negotiation styles, choosing an approach, making offers and counteroffers, creating and claiming value, narrowing options, breaking impasse, and dealing with closure behaviors. The second part of the seminar will focus on specific value-creation methodologies, risk analysis, cognitive error, implications from neuroscience, and dealing with difficult conduct.
The Negotiations Seminar will be in-person only.
The Leadership Summit will offer compelling speakers addressing key topics in surgical leadership.
