Impostor syndrome is an internalized sense of incompetence and not belonging. Female physicians were more likely to experience impostor syndrome than men, regardless of specialty or leadership role. While several identity-based gaps persist in leadership, impostor syndrome among racially minoritized groups may not be a significant contributor.

Launched in 1905 as Surgery, Gynecology & Obstetrics, and originally priced at $5/year, The Journal of the American College of Surgeons (JACS) actually predates the foundation of the ACS itself. Begun by Dr. Franklin Martin, a gynecologist from Wisconsin, the journal included articles, abstracts, book reviews, editorials, and, in the beginning, society news. In 1910, all subscribers to the publication were invited to gather in Chicago as a kind of travel club to observe and study surgery firsthand.
In 1911 a permanent organization was proposed, and by 1913 the American College of Surgeons began. In 1994, the journal’s name changed to the one we recognize today. JACS is the official scientific publication of the American College of Surgeons. Today, JACS focuses on original work of clinical relevance.
