Located on the coast south of downtown Santa Barbara, the Biltmore Resort is rated as one of the top resorts in California.

OBJECTIVES—This program is designated for practicing surgeons involved in the care of patients. It is meant to provide an update regarding treatment in general and sub-specialty surgical practice, and to enhance the knowledge of participants in these areas. The program is intended to meet the needs of surgeons in clinical practice for up to date information on the latest techniques in general and specialty surgical areas and to provide a means for surgical students and researchers to report the results of their research.

MOC self assessment credit - question writing

For the 2020 SCCACS meeting, surgeons will be able to take an online quiz to qualify for self-assessment credits for ALL sessions. A passing grade of 75% must be achieved to earn the credits. Abstract submissions MUST include 2 questions per submission - 1 of which needs to be a clinical case situation.

For ALL abstracts submitted for the 2020 Meeting, 2 questions/answers for MOC/Self Assessmet Credit must also be submitted at the time of abstract submission. NOTE: Of the 2 questions you submit, 1 MUST be a clinical case situation.
