  • Get the Most Out of Your Community

    The new look to ACS Communities is not the only change we’ve made to strengthen the value of this networking opportunity for our members. We’ve also updated the focus for each community. For example, if you have a question or success story about clinical issues and direct patient care, use the corresponding specialty community. The overall intent is to allow specialty communities to stay clinically relevant and focused on direct patient care, while other important surgically oriented issues are discussed in related communities developed for and focused by career stage, geographical region, practice type, etc. We hope you make the most out of this new opportunity for professional engagement!
