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

Submit Your Spectacular Cases

RAS Spectacular Cases

Deadline: May 3, 5:00 pm (Central)

We invite ACS surgical Resident Members and Associate Fellows to submit ONE case worthy of a discussion at the annual Spectacular Cases panel at Clinical Congress 2020.

Seven spectacular cases will be selected. This is an opportunity for Resident Members and Associate Fellows to present a case with spectacular significance (hint: because of a multidisciplinary approach in how the case was managed). Cases will be presented in an M&M style of case discussion. Selected spectacular cases (NOT case reports) will be presented to a group of expert panel members, followed by an interactive discussion. 

The discussion will be held on Tuesday, October 6, 8:00–11:15 am at the American College of Surgeons Clinical Congress 2020, in Chicago, IL.

Submissions are due by 5:00 pm CST on May 3. No exceptions for late entries.

You will need for your application:

  • Name
  • Title 
  • Institution you are working/training at
  • City, state 
  • PGY level
  • Phone number, preferably cell phone
  • E-mail address
  • Twitter handle
  • A one-page, 300 words (or less) abstract that includes the title and description of the case. Pictures and/or graphs are permitted. The references included can be outside of the 300-word limit.
