ACVS remains committed to providing the highest quality of education for surgeons and surgery residents at all levels, at all times—including this time of global uncertainty.
The Continuing Education Committee and the Board of Regents are dedicated to ensuring that both the requirements for health and safety, and opportunities for learning and maintenance of certification, are met for Diplomates and residents.
Now and in the coming months we will continue to work to produce an outstanding Surgery Summit experience as well as develop contingencies should we be unable to gather together this October in Washington, DC.
We encourage you to show your support for ACVS and its mission to advance surgical excellence through education by registering for the 2020 Surgery Summit. Registration opens May 5. If the 2020 Surgery Summit is canceled due to government-mandated restrictions on travel and large gatherings, registration fees will be refunded in full. Whether you come to us or we come to you, we can meet our goal of advancing surgical care together.
