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

North Dakota Chapter

North Dakota Chapter membership ensures the provision of high quality, evidence-based clinical practice, to strengthen the ethical code of practice for surgeons and to promote a healthy communication protocol amongst physicians. Chapters provide for a close association of their common effort to improve the quality of surgical care. ACS chapters plan to accomplish its objectives by establishing a solid organizational structure via the standard governance guidelines of the College, educating young surgeons and surgical residents, and giving a medium through which surgical experiences can be presented and discussed. Essentially, chapters will serve as the link between ACS members in the chapter and the American College of Surgeons in order to enhance chapter member’s relationships with the College.
