American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

International Surgeons

Connecting a global network of more than 82,000 members, international surgeons comprise nearly 10 percent of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) membership. The ACS is the strongest voice for surgeons of all specialties and has been at the forefront of providing quality support for surgeons since 1913. Scholarship programs, reduced membership dues and Clinical Congress registration fees, and educational resources for professional development are among the many benefits available to international members. Patient resources are also available in English, Spanish, and Chinese.
