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


It’s March and The Match (National Resident Matching Program) just ended; encourage those at your institutions who just matched into surgery to join ACS. We look forward to having them as members!

In this issue, we are offer several opportunities for RAS members to get involved. Write an essay on shiftwork in surgery for the Advocacy and Issues Committee–sponsored Symposium, volunteer to host a “hangout call” with the Membership Committee, and if you are a newly practicing surgeon, join the Associate Fellow Workgroup.

Enjoy this issue and the coming of spring!
