Welcome to the official website of the Academic Surgical Congress!
On behalf of the Executive Councils of the Association for Academic Surgery (AAS) and the Society of University Surgeons (SUS), we are delighted to invite you to Orlando, FL for the 15th Annual Academic Surgical Congress (ASC).
Over the past 15 years the ASC has become the premier gathering place for surgeon-scientists—offering unparalleled opportunities for scientific exchange and networking with peers. Each year the ASC registration grows and the program has become more diverse, with programming in basic science, education, health policy, outcomes research, global health, leadership, and many other topics relevant to academic surgery.
This year’s program, led by Jayme Locke, MD, MPH of the SUS and Carrie Lubitz, MD, MPH of the AAS, promises to be the most diverse, vibrant, and exciting yet! This year the AAS Founders lecture will be presented by Toby Cosgrove, MD, the SUS Joel J. Roslyn lecture by Benedict Nwomeh, MD, MPH, and the SUS BJS Lecture by Kathryn Chu, MD. We also invite you to attend each of the AAS and SUS Presidential Sessions and Addresses, which will discuss broad topics of critical relevance to the discipline today. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, we hope that you will develop new friendships and collaborations, and that these new relationships will enhance your goals of performing the highest quality research and improving patient care.
The combination of cutting-edge science, dynamic speakers, and rich mentoring programs for students, residents and junior faculty will provide a week full of learning and numerous opportunities to connect with colleagues!
We look forward to seeing you in Orlando!
