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

Why Join the Excelsior Surgical Society?

Our goal is simple: to improve military medicine through education, research, and fellowship.

Home for Military Surgeons

Medicine is constantly changing, particularly military medicine. As the Military Chapter of the ACS, the Excelsior Surgical Society provides a voice and a home for all military surgeons within the largest surgical organization in the world. The Excelsior Surgical Society serves as both an on-ramp to membership in the College as well as an off-ramp for surgeons as they separate from the military and transition to civilian practice. Additionally, in today’s evolving environment, the Military-Civilian Partnership is now as important as ever.

Fellowship, Mentorship, and Education

We strive to improve surgical education both on and off the battlefield by collaborating on issues that are pertinent to today’s active duty surgeon. While this may include preparedness for combat surgery, it also has to do with quality assurance for non-combat surgery, patient safety, and the incorporation of new surgical techniques and technology.
