Learn New Strategies and Tools with Webinars for Young Surgeons

We create webinars for young surgeons who are starting their careers in private or academic surgical practice. Take a deep dive into your career path choices and strategies, best practices for navigating the career ladder, and managing personal life and wellness.

The webinars are presented live by subject matter experts and accessible to you free of charge.  Enjoy interaction with the presenter in a live format or view the webinar later whenever your schedule permits.  These brief, yet extremely informative, web-based educational sessions are accessible for one year after the event.

Apply Now for the International Exchange Scholar Program

The RAS-ACS Membership Committee is accepting applications for RAS-ACS members to participate as outgoing representatives of ACS. The objectives of the exchange are to:

  • Encourage the international exchange of surgical information concerning training paradigms, health care delivery models, and research opportunities
  • Increase awareness of the ACS nationally and internationally
  • Highlight the benefits of membership and increase the membership contingent across the globe

The scholarship provides the opportunity for one North American-based ACS Resident member or Associate Fellow to be selected to travel to one of three host nations:

Rome, Italy: October 14–18, 2018

Ireland: November 2018

Australia: May 2019

The selected representative will travel to one of the three locations where they will attend the country’s surgical society meeting and participate in other surgical-related activities. Typically, the exchange is for less than one-week’s stay. A total of three travelers will be selected, one traveler to each of the three sites. Participants will be given a travel stipend up to $2,500 that will assist with expenses including airfare, hotel, and ground transportation. This program is reciprocated with the host nations sending scholars to the 2018 ACS Clinical Congress. 

If you are interested in this unique and wonderful opportunity, please submit your application by November 30.
