Innovation in education means advances in surgery
At the ACS, we are committed to surgeon educators—to fostering innovation, increasing collaboration, and, ultimately, helping surgeons learn what they need to know to improve surgical care for better patient outcomes. Surgeon educators are key to this initiative.
Fellowships are available for those seeking additional training after residency in one of the surgical specialties and are designed for the postgraduate board eligible/certified surgeon. The experience can expose participants to techniques that may not have been covered at great length during residency and encourage the pursuit of research activities.
It’s the encore presentation of ACS Clinical Congress Named Lectures 2017–2020. This release includes a range of clinical and non-clinical topics, all presented by world-renowned experts in surgery and surgical education. The next four Named Lectures from 2019 are:
