The 2018 American College of Surgeons (ACS) Comprehensive General Surgery Review Course, July 26–29 in Chicago, IL, is an intensive three-and-a-half-day review course that will cover essential content areas in general surgery, including alimentary tract, endocrine and soft tissue, oncology, skin and breast, surgical critical care, trauma, and vascular operations, as well as perioperative care.

Course Chair John A. Weigelt, MD, DVM, MMA, FACS, and a distinguished faculty will use didactic and case-based formats to present a comprehensive and practical review. Dr. Weigelt recently retired from the Medical College of Wisconsin, where he was the Milt & Lidy Lunda/Charles Aprahamian Professor of Trauma Surgery, as well as professor and chief, division of trauma and critical care. He is joining the University of South Dakota and the Sanford Health System, Sioux Falls, this summer as professor of surgery.

The course is a pragmatic review designed to focus on practice issues and will offer several special features, including self-assessment materials, such as pre- and posttests. It may be helpful in preparing for examinations. Self-assessment credit will be available.
