Join ACS Delegation to the AMA and Promote Surgical Priorities

The ACS is seeking a Resident Member to join its delegation to the American Medical Association (AMA). As a Delegate, the resident will advocate for ACS positions and priorities at the AMA interim and annual meetings. In addition, he or she will serve as liaison to the ACS Resident and Associates Society, which meets at the annual ACS Clinical Congress, for a 3-year term. Travel expenses to these three meetings will be paid for by the ACS.

The ideal candidate will have significant experience attending the AMA Medical Student Section, a strong interest in advocacy and health policy, and at least 3 years remaining at their training program. Additionally, letters of support from the candidate’s program director and chair are required, verifying that the resident will be excused from call coverage to allow for participation in the required meetings.

If you are interested or know a resident who might be, submit a CV, letter of intent, and letters of support from Program Director and Chair to Kristin McDonald, ACS Chief of Legislative and Political Affairs, at kmcdonald@facs.org by Friday, March 3.
