Register for General Surgery Review Course



The American College of Surgeons (ACS) Comprehensive General Surgery Review Course will take place July 30–August 2 in Chicago, IL. The intensive three-and-a-half-day review course will cover essential content areas in general surgery, including abdomen, alimentary tract, endocrine, oncology, perioperative care, skin and breast, surgical critical care, trauma, and vascular operations. Course Chair John A. Weigelt, MD, DVM, FACS, and a distinguished faculty will use didactic and case-based formats for a comprehensive and practical review. Dr. Weigelt is Medical Director of the ACS Surgical Education and Self-Assessment Program and professor of surgery; chief, division of trauma and critical care; and associate dean of clinical quality at the Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.

The course will feature a variety of self-assessment materials as well as five monthly online modules following the course. Organized by the ACS Division of Education, this course will help to fulfill the requirements for Maintenance of Certification, Part 2, and should be helpful to surgeons preparing for recertification examinations. Self-assessment credits will be available.

Space is limited and registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information and to register for the course, view the ACS course page at e-mail, or call 312-202-5018. The ACS designates this live activity for a maximum of 30 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
