American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Video-Based Education Webinar Series

The ACS Video-Based Education Committee has developed a monthly webinar series highlighting selected Video-Based Education Sessions from Clinical Congress 2021. These are sessions that were originally slated to be presented during a live Clinical Congress, but were not offered in the virtual meeting. During the webinars, a panel of moderators and authors will present videos and participate in a live Q&A.

Following each webinar session, the live sessions will be recorded and included in online courses. Each session will offer 1 hour of CME credit. Members can purchase sessions for $20 and non-members can purchase sessions for $30.
