LA-ACS Annual Meeting

January 17-19, 2020



The Resident and Associate Society of the American College of Surgeons (RAS-ACS), an organization within the American College of Surgeons, was formed to benefit the surgeons of the future through involvement in activities of the College.

The mission of this organization is to:

  • Familiarize residents and young surgeons in all surgical specialties with the College and its programs and leadership
  • Provide an avenue for participation in College affairs
  • Enable members to develop and use leadership skills in organized surgery
  • Provide opportunities for the opinions and concerns of residents and young surgeons to be heard by the College leadership

While other medical societies have developed similar resident organizations, the RAS-ACS is the only surgical organization devoted to the concerns and needs of all surgical residents and young surgeons.
