Your knowledge, skills, and experience are vital to the practice of surgery
Senior surgeons play a vital role in their hospitals and communities, and their knowledge and years of experience are highly valuable resources. If as a senior surgeon you decide to relinquish your clinical role, you can contribute significantly to teaching, surgical assisting, research, and administration. If your abilities permit, and if you’re willing, please keep contributing. We all need you, and the ACS is here to help. Read the Full Statement.
The mission of the Academy is to lead the way in helping any and all surgeons reach mastery. To do that, we define megatrends in surgical education, steer advances in the field, foster innovation and collaboration, support faculty development, and underscore the need for surgical education and training in healthcare.
A critical resource for all general surgeons, Selected Readings in General Surgery (SRGS®) helps maximize surgeons’ time by reviewing 150 of the latest and most valuable articles published in the world’s most prominent medical journals. Topics include breast disease, colorectal disease, biliary tract disease, and more.
