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

Quality and Safety Conference

2020 ACS Quality and Safety Conference Goes Virtual

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) has made the difficult decision to transition the 2020 ACS Quality and Safety Conference—originally planned to be in Minneapolis this July—to a virtual event. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing travel restrictions and social distancing guidance leaves us no choice. The health and safety of our attendees, faculty, and patients remains our top priority.

While disappointed we won’t be able to meet in person, we are excited to hold the conference as a virtual event, and we want to know what content will interest you. We always strive to offer information that is timely and relevant and this year, in particular, we want to know what you want to hear about in quality and our programs. We always appreciate your input in our planning process. Submit your topic recommendations.

A separate communication and survey will be sent to everyone who submitted an abstract.

We will provide additional information in the coming weeks. Please continue to check the ACS website for updates. Information related to hotel reservations is below.

Thank you to our fellow surgeons, nurses, and health care professionals who continue to work tirelessly through the current crisis and every day. Your commitment and courage deserve our sincerest gratitude.

We look forward to seeing you next year in Denver, CO, for the 2021 ACS Quality and Safety Conference!
