The intensive three-and-a-half-day review course will cover essential content areas in general surgery, including abdomen, alimentary tract, endocrine, oncology, perioperative care, skin and breast, surgical critical care, trauma, and vascular operations. Course Chair John A. Weigelt, MD, DVM, FACS, and a distinguished faculty will use didactic and case-based formats to present a comprehensive and practical review.

The course will feature a variety of self-assessment materials, as well as five monthly online modules following the course.
