I would like to thank Chapter members who sponsored a resident, and senior members who contributed to the resident research prize. I would also like to express my sincere appreciation to the 25 industry partners who contributed to the 2015 meeting with exhibit tables and sponsorships.

Call for Nominations: Resident Council Member

The Council of the Massachusetts Chapter of the American College of Surgeons (MCACS) is accepting nominations for a resident to serve as a member of the MCACS Council, which develops policies and procedures for the Chapter and oversees its activities. The term is two years beginning when the resident is a PGY 3. The requirements for candidates to be considered are strong leadership skills and an interest in serving. The Council meets four times a year in February, May, September and December. Please email the names of any candidates whom you wish the Council to consider as well as a brief description about the candidate to Elissa Klein, by Friday, November 11, 2016.

 

The Massachusetts Chapter of the American College of Surgeons (MCACS) will sponsor one surgery resident to attend the 2017 ACS Leadership Conference and Advocacy Summit, which will be held May 6-9, 2017 at the Renaissance Hotel in Washington, DC. The recipient will be reimbursed for his/her travel expenses and registration.

To be considered for the MCACS competition, the resident must be in an ACGME-approved Massachusetts surgery residency training program, and submit a brief essay on why he/she wants to attend the conference and the role of advocacy in health care.
