Positions are available for the ACS Mastery in General Surgery Program for the 2023–2024 academic year, and surgery residents are encouraged to apply for positions that will begin next fall. Applicants may review the program profiles on the ACS website and submit an application to MasteryGS@facs.org.
The program provides graduating surgery residents with a personalized experience in clinical settings during the first year in practice, with close mentoring from senior surgeons that offers a valuable experience during the transition from residency to independent practice.
Individuals enrolled in this program serve as junior associates in general surgery practice environments and are given graduated autonomy during the year to advance their surgical skills, decision-making, and case management under the watchful eye of expert senior surgeons. Associates learn about the business of medicine and acquire skills to succeed in the evolving healthcare environment. They receive specific feedback throughout the year and at the conclusion of the program.
