Keystone Chapter American College of Surgeons

The Keystone Chapter's Case Review Competition included many unique, novel, and exceptional submissions. Ten submissions were selected to present in a virtual, on-demand format. The top submissions will be eligible for a peer review and submission for publication consideration in the national and renown, now open-source ACS Case Reviews in Surgery.

We hope members will support our Medical Students, Residents, and Fellows-in-Training, by registering and viewing their exceptional presentations. The American College of Surgeons designate this activity for up to a maximum of 2.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Participants can also claim up to 2.5 credits of Self-Assessment by completing the quiz and scoring a 75% or greater.

Why Join A Local ACS Chapter?

Why belong to your local chapter? Local chapters offer opportunities to network with colleagues in your backyard, attend seminars and other educational events close to home and monitor legislative and regulatory issues affecting Pennsylvania physicians. Chapter members looking for guidance or assistance with an issue can reach out to another member, close to home, that could be dealing with the same state-related issue.
