The International Committee of the Consortium of American College of Surgeons Accredited Education Institutes (ACS-AEI) serves to breakdown the silos among the different AEIs across the globe.
In this direction, it focuses on establishing an active and meaningful forum of participating international AEIs to:
- Identify and catalogue the existing barriers, inequalities, as well as their individual characteristics, needs, and practices
- Perform SWOT analyses and communicate the results back to USA counterparts to enhance the collective power of the Consortium
- Collaborate with the other ACS-AEI committees in order to effectively facilitate implementation of uniform curricula; and to assess, develop, and implement multi-institutional research programs
- Promote the ACS-AEI vision in other countries and institutions wishing to share our common goals.
