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

Virtual Site Visits

When the COVID-19 pandemic began, the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma (ACS COT) Verification, Review, and Consultation (VRC) Program began working on how to safely and effectively conduct site visits. Out of this effort grew our current virtual site visit process. For the time being, all ACS VRC Site visits are currently virtual. As the situation evolves, VRC participants will be kept informed of any changes to the site visits process and the program.

The application for virtual site visits is found on the TQP Account Center. Click on the link below to log into the Account Center.
