YFA essay submissions, “Promise of a profession,” due May 1

The Young Fellows Association (YFA) of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) is accepting essays on ”The promise of a profession: The transformation of surgery and surgeons into the next decade.” Essay submissions should be 400–500 words in length and are due May 1, 2014.

Essays may reflect personal experiences or philosophical thoughts on the promise of the surgical profession. The YFA Governing Council will review and judge all of the submitted essays. The winning entry will be published in an upcoming edition of the ACS Bulletin. Outstanding submissions will appear in future quarterly YFA e-newsletters.
