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

Member Communities

Member Communities

ACS Communities is the members-only, online community of the American College of Surgeons (ACS). This networking tool provides an environment in which ACS members can not only connect, engage, and share information and best practices in real time, but can also ask advice, share experiences, exchange resources, and build professional relationships. Unlike traditional professional networks such as LinkedIn, ACS Communities' private forums are protected by multiple security levels that give members of the College the place they need to discuss the things that matter most to them in a way that does not jeopardize the privacy of their patients. In addition, new features will be added in the coming months to make ACS Communities even more collaborative.
