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

Tennessee Chapter

The Mission of the Tennessee Chapter of the American College of Surgeons is to improve the health of the residents of Tennessee, and the Southeastern Region of the United States, by promoting the ethical practice of the art and science of surgery. The Tennessee Chapter is dedicated to the promotion of membership, the provision of advocacy for surgeons and patients, the education of surgeons and resident surgeons, and the ultimate improvement and measurement of patient care and safety. The Chapter provides a network for those Fellows in the State and serves as their liaison to the American College of Surgeons.

Three important affiliates of the Tennessee Chapter are the Tennessee Surgical Quality Collaborative (, the Tennessee Committee on Trauma, and the Tennessee State Cancer Committee.
