Join Us in San Diego for Clinical Congress 2022

This year's Clinical Congress will take place October 16-20 in San Diego, CA. ACS President Julie A. Freischlag, MD, FACS, FRCSEd(Hon), DFSVS, MAMSE, has selected #SurgeonsSowingHope as the  theme of the conference.

Clinical Congress remains the premier annual academic meeting for surgeons, surgery residents, medical students, and members of their surgical teams. It offers a range of outstanding didactic and hands-on learning opportunities and cutting-edge advancements from surgical practices and research in a venue with unparalleled access to your peers.

The robust scientific program will include:

  • 12 named lectures, including a new one sponsored by the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery
  • 120 panel sessions
  • 2 special sessions, including one from the ACS Academy of Master Surgeon Educators™
  • 75 scientific forum sessions, including a new one featuring seminal abstracts
  • 34 video-based education sessions
  • 45 meet-the-expert sessions
  • 21 town hall meetings

Postgraduate courses will include:

  • 16 didactic courses
  • 17 skills courses

These postgraduate courses will use a longitudinal approach to learning, including coursework before and after Congress, based on the experiences during the pandemic.

See you in San Diego!
