The American College of Surgeons’ (ACS) Selected Readings in General Surgery (SRGS®) scours peer-reviewed medical journals for the most relevant evidence-based content. In this video, ACS Fellows discuss how they use this product to spend their time learning, not searching. Eight online and print editions of the digest are issued each year to help surgeons stay current with the most important articles in surgery.
