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


ASK MBSAQIP® is an informal, monthly webinar series where we invite you to ask Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) staff anything you want to know about participation in the MBSAQIP.

All ASK MBSAQIP webinars are open to the public. Current and prospective MBSAQIP participants are encouraged to attend, including MBS directors, MBS coordinators, MBS clinical reviewers, surgeons, integrated health providers, and hospital administrators.

All participants must register in advance for each call. MBSAQIP will send a monthly registration reminder to all participating centers. The registration link below will allow participants to register for every call scheduled for the upcoming year. Any questions* you would like us to address will be submitted when you register for that month’s call.

*Please reserve clinical questions regarding the MBSAQIP Registry, variables, definitions, and long-term follow-up for the MBSAQIP Clinical Support Staff: We will not answer clinical questions during the ASK MBSAQIP webinars.
