The American College of Surgeons (ACS) Office of Public Information serves as the College’s information resource and referral center for the communications media—both lay and scientific—and the public. Our public information staff works to maintain ongoing, positive working relationships with the press. We disseminate information about the surgical profession, advances in surgery, updates on the College’s surgical quality and educational programs, and health policy issues that affect surgeons and their patients.
Reaching out to the medical news community to facilitate press coverage of the College’s annual scientific meetings is another key media relations activity, and all interested reporters are welcome and encouraged to apply for press credentials to cover the College’s upcoming Clinical Congress this fall. The Clinical Congress is the largest international meeting of surgeons in the world.
