Change your community and change yourself
Operation Giving Back (OGB), the volunteerism initiative of the American College of Surgeons (ACS), serves as a comprehensive resource center where you can find information to investigate and participate in surgical volunteer opportunities. OGB provides the necessary tools to facilitate humanitarian outreach among ACS members of all specialties, at all stages of their profession, and with an emphasis on domestic and/or international service. Through a network of high-impact partner organizations, OGB directs you to volunteer opportunities that align with your skills, passions, and beliefs.
Operation Giving Back (OGB) is working to promote domestic surgical volunteerism. We would like to encourage all surgeons who provide volunteer services for underserved populations to help us develop a comprehensive database where other surgical colleagues could support your volunteer work.
