THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA CHAPTER AND THE AMERICAN COLLEGE OF SURGEONS

The Mission of the Southern California Chapter is to support the practice, teaching and science of Surgery in Southern California through scholarship, mentorship, Fellowship and advocacy, by means of scientific meetings and continuing education, in partnership with the American College of Surgeons.

Plan now for our upcoming Scientific Meeting!  The 2023 annual meeting will be held at the Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara, January 20-22, 2023. The program is now available to review and registration is open.  The early bird registration deadline is December 16, 2022, so make your plans today.

A number of popular annual events are back for this meeting. Highlights include the “Challenging Dilemmas in General Surgery” which will be held Friday afternoon, followed by the Welcome Cocktail Reception. Saturday’s agenda includes the “Young Surgeons Breakfast,” the “Women in Surgery Luncheon,” and the ever-lively “Battle of the Blades” and “Resident Surgical Jeopardy” competitions. At the end of the day Saturday, please join your fellow #socal surgeons for a relaxing Wine and Cheese Reception.
