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

Increase Your Event’s Reach Online by Using the ACS-AEI Calendar

In April 2016, a project was started to actively monitor the traffic to the American College of Surgeons-Accredited Education Institutes (ACS-AEI) Calendar to demonstrate the value in posting events on an online Consortium calendar. Since the beginning of this year, on a daily basis, approximately 25 users view the upcoming events box on our homepage. This number has increased by roughly 9 users since April 2016. Also, enhanced analytics since June 2016 show that roughly 2.8 users open up the calendar to view all calendar offerings on an average of 19 days a month. All of these analytics and the ability to track the number of times a user clicks on the calendar event’s link are available. We encourage AEIs to take advantage of the promotional benefit of the Consortium calendar. We also encourage AEIs who are already familiar with the calendar to continue submitting their courses for all learner types with or without CME Credit.

To promote your center’s course(s), please use the online calendar submission form under “Resources for AEIs” on the AEI homepage or contact Amy Johnson at or 312-202-5415.
