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

Northern California Chapter

The Northern California Chapter of the American College of Surgeons extends from the Oregon border, between the Pacific Ocean and Nevada, across the state of California to the San Joaquin Valley. Within this broad geographic territory reside six surgical training programs, located at the University of California-Davis, Alameda County Medical Center/University of California-SF East Bay, Stanford University, University of California-SF Fresno, San Joaquin General, and the University of California-San Francisco. Clinical programs within chapter boundaries span the spectrum of surgical private practice, academic medical centers, Veteran’s and military hospitals, and health maintenance organizations. Chapter members provide invaluable services to the public, highlighted by the successful emergency and trauma surgical care delivered in 12 Bay Area hospitals to the 181 passengers of the Asiana Airlines incident in August of 2013. The Chapter also provides a special service by collaborating with elected officials at the state capitol in Sacramento on different legislative agendas. The state capitol is located within the Chapter’s boundaries.
