American College of Surgeons Meeting taking place now

The American College of Surgeons’ Annual Clinical Congress is one of the largest international meetings of surgeons in the world and is taking place from October 23-27 at the Moscone convention centre in San Francisco.

According to the introductory welcome letter from Dr Carlos Pellegrini, Chair of the Board of Regents;  “The Clinical Congress Program has been arranged in thematic tracks that address content of interest to all surgical specialties as well as specialty-based tracks that address the learning needs of various specialty groups. The stimulating educational content, which includes special opportunities to address regulatory requirements and interact with experts, and the ability to reconnect with professional colleagues make the 2011 Clinical Congress an essential meeting for all practicing surgeons, surgical residents, and members of surgical teams. On behalf of the American College of Surgeons, I look forward to welcoming you to San Francisco for the 97th Annual Clinical Congress, which will have as its theme The Surgeon as a Leader: Addressing Health Care Disparities.”
