Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to invite you to attend the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Clinical Congress, to be held October 4–8, 2015, in Chicago, IL. The ACS Clinical Congress remains the premier annual surgical meeting and provides a broad range of outstanding education and training opportunities for surgeons, surgery residents, medical students, and members of surgical teams. Cutting-edge surgical research, hands-on learning opportunities, timely discourse on the most relevant surgical topics, and unparalleled peer access have long been hallmarks of Clinical Congress.

Achieving Your Personal Best: Improvement Based on Evidence was selected as the Clinical Congress 2015 theme by ACS President, Andrew L. Warshaw, MD, FACS, FRCSEd(Hon). The Program Committee, chaired by Valerie W. Rusch, MD, FACS, along with the ACS Division of Education under the leadership of Ajit K. Sachdeva, MD, FACS, FRCSC, have developed another outstanding Scientific Program. Efforts continue to be made to further enhance the educational program of the Clinical Congress to most effectively address evolving education and training needs in an ever-changing environment. Cutting-edge education and training methods along with state-of-the-art technology are used to achieve the best outcomes.

The 2015 Program has been arranged in key thematic tracks, covering both clinical and nonclinical topics, and should be of interest to surgeons from across various specialties. More than 120 Panel Sessions will cover the wide range of topics in these areas, and an exciting series of Named Lectures will be delivered by world-renowned experts in their respective fields. Didactic/Experiential and Surgical Skills Courses will emphasize advanced knowledge and skill acquisition through focused, applied learning techniques.

The Scientific Forum will offer surgical research presentations delivered in either podium or poster formats, with special recognition of resident and developing researcher presentations. Video-Based Education Sessions will showcase surgical procedures and current practices. Meet-the-Expert Luncheons and Town Hall Meetings on topics of interest allow for a more intimate learning experience in smaller settings.

Continuing Medical Education Credit is available for the majority of these learning opportunities, and most Panels, Courses, and Video-Based Education Sessions will also offer Self-Assessment Credit. Attendees will be able to obtain Levels of Verification following their participation in Postgraduate Courses. Sessions and courses covering the topics of patient safety, ethics, trauma/critical care, palliative care, and pain management may satisfy specific regulatory mandates.

In addition to the education and training opportunities offered, the ACS Clinical Congress is an excellent venue for networking with colleagues. On behalf of the American College of Surgeons, I look forward to welcoming you to Chicago for Clinical Congress.

With best regards,

Mark C. Weissler, MD, FACS

Chair, ACS Board of Regents
