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

Welcome to the Latest Issue

This month’s issue of Associate Fellow News offers glimpses into the life and work of young surgeons in the operating room in Rwanda, in the delivery room in Oregon, and in the research lab in Nepal by way of Washington state. Check out the new Operating Room Checklist from the Resident Education Committee, and consider Hanging Out with us for another glimpse into surgical subspecialties as we talk to Brett Starr and others about cardiothoracic surgery. If you’re interested in leadership opportunities, the Resident and Associate Society of the American College of Surgeons (RAS-ACS) has more than 15 liaison positions to choose from, and applications are due by June 15.

Enjoy this month’s issue.
