Outstanding Educational Programs
Each year the Chapter holds an excellent meeting offering 8-10 credit hours of Category 1 continuing medical education credits. Normally, there are two nationally recognized speakers whose presentations are complemented by papers from surgeons from across the state. There is no registration fee for Chapter members.
The LA-ACS offers an excellent opportunity to meet and share information with your fellow Louisiana colleagues at various social and educational events throughout the state.
As an active member of the Chapter, you have the opportunity to serve on the LA-ACS Council and make your voice heard in all topics from legislative issues and advocacy to supporting the efforts of all surgeons in the state of Louisiana. We also have a Cancer Committee and Trauma Committee that work to establish ACS certified cancer and trauma programs throughout the state.
