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

Message from the Administrator

This March, along with welcoming medical students who have matched into general surgery residency programs, we are also welcoming the thoughts and experiences of several members from around the globe. In this issue, Dr. Nura Ahmed Fieturi, an Associate Fellow, talks about starting a chapter in Libya; Dr. Priyanka Naidu discusses working in Africa with Operation Smile; and we announce the winners of the Resident and Associate Society of the American College of Surgeons (RAS-ACS) International Exchange Scholarship Program. Several essay contests are also listed in this issue, one with a $500 cash prize and another that offers the opportunity to present at Clinical Congress 2020.
