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

Metropolitan Philadelphia Chapter

Founded on October 17, 1986, the Metropolitan Philadelphia Chapter of the American College of Surgeons, one of four Chapters in Pennsylvania, remains very active in the city of Philadelphia and surrounding counties. The annual dinner meeting is held in May and is held in conjunction with the Philadelphia Academy of Surgery. Since 2009, the Chapter has offered a free annual mock oral board examination for senior residents and recent graduates preparing for the General Surgical Certifying Exam. The Metro Philly Chapter also has events for Young Surgeons and Residents throughout the year. The annual surgical jeopardy tournament is held in the fall and the Resident Abstract Competition is held in conjunction with the annual dinner meeting.
