Dear Colleagues:

The American College of Surgeons Clinical Congress offers members a remarkable experience.

The meeting has consistently presented a broad range of substantive opportunities for surgeons to meet colleagues, participate in discussions, and learn about the latest innovations in our profession. The 2015 ACS Clinical Congress was no exception.

The ACS Clinical Congress Report is a collection of news coverage and video interviews from the meeting. This sampling of reportage by ACS Surgery News is meant to convey the essence of the meeting: new ideas, intense debate, and a profound commitment to professional development.

We hope this collection of articles will serve as a reminder of what the Clinical Congress is all about. The 2016 ACS Clinical Congress will be held in Washington, DC, Oct. 16-20. The Clinical Congress will be another opportunity to take part in discussions, interact with colleagues, and witness firsthand the breaking news and unveiling of discoveries in our field. We hope you are inspired to attend.
