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

Message from the Editor

Amalia Stefanou, MD, FACS

We are looking forward to the upcoming Clinical Congress in San Francisco! The YFA has many sponsored sessions at this year’s meeting and I hope you will all be able to participate. Additional ways to be involved with YFA include attending our annual general meeting and learning about open positions and ways to have meaningful participation in the ACS. 

Soon I will be sending out an invitation to participate in our yearly speed mentoring session, which is always a lot of fun. YFA members sit at tables and residents rotate through the tables to have mini mentoring sessions. I encourage all of you to attend.

Be sure to register soon and don’t forget to also make your hotel reservations—we all know how quickly those fill up!!

If anyone is interested in writing a submission for the newsletter, please reach out. We would like to include pieces that share aspects of YFA members’ careers or practices, like obtaining additional degrees, or practicing in a certain location or patient population.
