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.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: FRIDAY, MARCH 26, 2021
The Keystone Chapter is hosting a Case Review in Surgery competition for our Fellows, Residents, and Medical Students, following the ACS guidelines. Submissions will be judged and top submissions will present their Case Review in a live, virtual format the week of April 26, 2021.
Case Reviews in Surgery is an interesting, unique, peer-reviewed program addressing some of the most significant educational needs of practicing surgeons and surgery residents. The published case reviews will offer our members and the surgical community access to high-quality, in-depth analyses of actual surgical cases.
Winning submissions will be eligible and submitted for publication consideration in the national and renown, now open-source ACS Case Reviews in Surgery.
