American College of Surgeons Launches Enhanced “Surgery Career Connection” Powered by YourMembership


CHICAGO (September 2, 2015): The American College of Surgeons (ACS) today announced the launch of Surgery Career Connection, a new career center that connects surgeons across all disciplines and career stages with employers offering career opportunities. Surgery Career Connection is powered by YourMembership, the leading provider of job websites and career centers for organizations that serve specialized members.   

“Providing our members with opportunities for professional development and career growth are core to our mission to serve the surgical profession,” said Patricia L. Turner, MD, FACS, Director, ACS Division of Member Services.  “Our members are highly appealing to employers because they’ve demonstrated a commitment to the highest levels of integrity and surgical training,” she continued.  “YourMembership’s technology and sales support will ensure that our website serves our members and Fellows by providing a clear connection with healthcare organizations that value and seek the skills, expertise, certifications, and training they have to offer.”

In addition to serving as a robust source of up to thousands of surgical job opportunities, the Surgery Career Connection will be set apart by a number of benefits it offers to surgeons and employers, including:

  • the ability for surgeons to post anonymous resumes, allowing them to be recruited while remaining in control over which employers view their complete information
  • a variety of options for employers to expose jobs to passive job-seeking surgeons who do not visit job boards, including Jobs Flash emails to ACS members and integration into ACS’s publication platforms
  • integration of job content into social media channels to engage surgeons and provide valuable job exposure to ACS’s audiences and relevant users of Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social channels
  • extensive employment brand advertising opportunities for employers
  • a mobile-responsive environment to ensure job seekers have an optimal experience regardless of device being used
  • the ability for surgeons to be alerted every time a new job becomes available that matches their personal goals and interests  
  • integration of career resources, training, and other benefits offered by ACS to surgeon members
  • the ability for job seekers and employers to gain exposure throughout YourMembership’s network of nearly 2,500 niche Career Centers

 “The American College of Surgeons is a world-class organization whose members and Fellows are an integral part of the country’s healthcare delivery system,” said Tristan Jordan, Senior Vice President, YM Careers.  “Surgery Career Connection is an innovative gateway that matches the right healthcare providers with the right surgical talent to help keep surgical facilities well-staffed and surgical professionals’ careers moving along a professional path that meets their goals.”
