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

Welcome to the Latest Issue

On behalf of the Resident and Associate Society of the American College of Surgeons (RAS-ACS) community, congratulations to those members finishing their training and clinical fellowships and starting practice. We encourage you to transfer your membership now to Associate Fellow status so there is no interruption to your member benefits. To those entering the hallowed residency halls for the first days of training, welcome to surgery! We support you, we wish you the best, and please know that we are here for you every step of your surgical career.

This month, please place your vote for the next RAS Executive Committee member. An e-mail ballot was sent to all members on July 14.

In this issue, you can hear from RAS Education Committee members about preparing resident activities for chapter meetings, read updates on the work of our RAS liaisons, and get some words of advice on preparing a plan for working in global surgery from RAS Global Surgery Workgroup member Amber Himmler, MD. Enjoy!
