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


Since the inception of the American College of Surgeons (ACS), its members have worked to achieve the very best outcomes for their patients. Never content with the status quo, Fellows of the College are motivated to always provide safer care today and better care tomorrow.

On this page, a series of videos shows surgeons reacting to the question “What inspires you to provide the highest quality surgical care?” Their comments reflect their vision and ongoing desire to constantly improve surgical care so that their patients can live healthy and productive lives.

Also included on this page are two videos outlining how, through its quality programs and by working with health care leaders across the country, the College will continue to lead efforts to improve the quality of care and help move this country’s health care system in the right direction.
