The American College of Surgeons (ACS) 2013 Clinical Congress will offer a first-time course titled Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Review: Essentials for Surgical Specialties. The course, which will take place Tuesday, October 8, 12:30–4:45 pm, will address surgical fundamentals common across the specialties, such as emergency airway management; deep vein thrombosis prophylaxis; postoperative management, including myocardial infarction recognition; pain management; and patient safety.
Course Chair Robert R. Lorenz, MD, FACS—an otolaryngologist and attending surgeon, Cleveland (OH) Clinic—and Co-Chair Robert Bahnson, MD, FACS—a urological surgeon at the Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute and Ohio State University Medical Center, Columbus, and Chair of the American College of Surgeons Professional Association’s political action committee (ACSPA-SurgeonsPAC)—have developed a course that is designed to help prepare participants for recertification examinations and support lifelong learning and practice improvement. Sponsored by the ACS Division of Education and approved by the Program Committee, the MOC course will include continuing medical education credit that may be used for self-assessment purposes.
The College has arranged a special fee structure for this premiere course, charging nonmembers the same enrollment fee as ACS Fellows. This reduced fee applies to this course only and not to the Clinical Congress registration fee. To register for the course, go to the 2013 Clinical Congress Web page.
