The chapters of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) provide you with opportunities to improve the quality of surgical care via educational, networking, and social events at the local level. We have 110 chapters across the world. Local chapters work in conjunction with the College to provide outstanding networking and educational opportunities and professional development resources through chapter meetings, conferences, and community outreach. Both the ACS chapters and the College share and support the same goals, which include our most import—our mission to be “dedicated to improving the care of the surgical patient and to safeguarding standards of care in an optimal and ethical practice environment.”
ACS chapters also offer a venue for all of our members—from all surgical specialties—to communicate. Through our chapters, you can become actively engaged in legislative advocacy efforts that directly affect the socioeconomic aspects of health care. Chapter membership is open to all members of the College.
