The Surgeons as Leaders program, offered by the American College of Surgeons (ACS), is an annual, dynamic three-day course for surgeons of all backgrounds and specialties who currently serve in leadership positions or aspire to such positions, and who seek to enhance their leadership skills across a wide variety of settings, from operating room to boardroom. Combining interactive forums, small group discussions, and presentations by national leaders, the course provides participants with essential leadership skills, and also assists them in recognizing and developing leadership attributes they already possess. ACS Fellows discuss the ways the course helps surgeons build leadership skills, develop leadership strategies, and translate the principles of leadership into action.
