The Michigan Chapter of the American College of Surgeons (MCACS) is comprised of committed surgeons advancing patient health via education and advocacy. The Chapter provides networking opportunities which enhance personal relationships between members. Involvement in the chapter provides an invaluable asset to surgeons by allowing them to create positive change and to “make a difference.” MCACS is a grassroots arm of the ACS, working at the state level to educate policy makers about issues affecting everyday surgery including: scope of practice, medical malpractice, and quality/safety issues. In addition, MCACS works to elevate and advance the science and practice of surgery in the state by hosting educational meetings deemed valuable to surgeons due to CME and MOC certification activities.
