The American College of Surgeons (ACS) proudly welcomed 1,619 medical and osteopathic school graduating seniors who made the match with surgery (categorical) residency programs and the 632 MDs and DOs who matched in surgery (postgraduate year one only) earlier this spring. ACS Executive Director Patricia L. Turner, MD, MBA, FACS, posted a video message congratulating the newly matched residents as they take their next step on the path to becoming surgeons and encouraging them to become Resident Members of the College.
