Clinical Congress Highlights

Take Advantage of Programming for Associate Fellows and Residents

ACS Career Fair

The RAS-ACS welcomes Associate Fellows and Resident members to join us for programming especially relevant to the needs of young surgeons and surgeons-in-training at Clinical Congress 2017, October 22–26 in San Diego, CA. 

Make sure to mark your calendar for the RAS-ACS Symposium on Sunday, October 22, 3:00–5:30 pm. During the symposium, young surgeons and experienced surgeons will debate such issues as: What should surgical leadership look like in the 21st century? Should we strive for a seat at the table of business, policy, and politics? Or should we strengthen our commitment to direct patient care, surgical education, and research?

Check out additional offerings for Residents and Associate Fellows.

Join Your Colleagues for Wellness Activities

In addition to regularly scheduled scientific and educational opportunities, a wide range of engagement events will be offered at Clinical Congress 2017. Join your colleagues for several wellness activities, including early morning yoga, running and walking tours, and a spin class to name a few. Finish off your stay in San Diego by attending the ACS Taste of the City on Wednesday night, October 25, 5:30–7:30 pm. Learn more about events and special activities at Clinical Congress 2017 on the ACS website.

Visit the ACS Career Fair

The ACS Career Fair is a recruiting event with more than 20 hospitals, private practices, and health care organizations from around the country looking to talk and meet with interested candidates from a variety of surgical specialties. All levels of ACS members—from residents to early-, mid-, and late-career surgeons—who may be looking for a practice-setting change should visit the ACS Career Fair. The ACS Career Fair will also include the ACS Surgery Career Connection booth, so you can review all available surgeon jobs posted to the career site and talk to a representative about how to take full advantage of everything the site has to offer. Experts will be on hand to review resumes and provide interview tips. The ACS Career Fair will be located in the Exhibit Hall and will be open Monday, October 23 through Wednesday, October 25, 9:00 am–4:30 pm.
