The Resident Committee, an organization within the Louisiana Chapter of 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 RES-LAACS is the only surgical organization devoted to the concerns and needs of all surgical residents and young surgeons.
