Join us in-person for the premier scientific and educational surgical meeting of the year, October 16–20 in San Diego, CA.

For the first time since 2019, world-renowned experts in the clinical practice of surgery—as well as leaders in surgical education, research, and technology—will come together at Clinical Congress 2022 for a 5-day in-person and virtual event, October 16–20 in San Diego, CA. Learn from the experts, hear about groundbreaking procedures and research, network with peers from around the globe, and gain clinical and non-clinical knowledge that you can put into practice immediately.

“We are looking forward to welcoming you back to the in-person Clinical Congress,” said Ajit K. Sachdeva, MD, FACS, FRCSC, FSACME, MAMSE, Director, ACS Division of Education. “The multidimensional program of this Clinical Congress is very strong and is founded on contemporary educational constructs. The sessions offer unique opportunities to acquire new knowledge and skills that may be applied to surgical practice.”
