Discounted Subscriptions for Other Faculty

If faculty would like a subscription to SRGS Connect, we offer a 50% discount off listed prices for SRGS Connect Practicing Surgeon (without full-text reprints; similar to Resident version) or SRGS Connect Premium (with full-text reprints of select articles). Final price depends on ACS member status. Faculty can be added to the initial SRGS Connect Resident order; please identify as faculty.

About Discounted Member Pricing

All subscribers must be ACS members to take advantage of the discounted initial package price for members. It’s easy to become an ACS Resident member; PGY1s are free for one year, other residents’ fees are $20 annually. Submit ACS Resident Member applications or reinstatement forms to ACS Member Services and fees at least two weeks before your anticipated SRGS Connect Resident subscription start date. More information is available in the document “Steps to Ensure a Hassle-Free Order Process.”

CME for Program Directors

The program director can earn 10 AMA PRA Category 1™ credits at no extra charge by completing a 20-question pretest and 20-question posttest that is part of each edition. To access the self-assessment test, go to “CME Test Login” and enter your ACS username and password.

Residents also have access to these tests (presented as 40 multiple-choice questions, prepared in standard examination format), but do not earn CME credit for completing them.
