The article “The ACS Accredited Education Institutes Fellowship Program: Training leaders in simulation-based education” (July 2014) misstated that the American College of Surgeons (ACS) began to address the use of simulation in surgical education in 2004. The College’s first efforts to adapt simulation to education began in April 2002 when the ACS and the National Board on Educational Testing and Public Policy hosted a two-day symposium on the potential use of simulation as an educational tool in surgery. The meeting was held at Boston College, Chestnut Hill, MA, under the direction of ACS Past-President Gerald B. Healy, MD, FACS, and Past-Executive Director, Thomas R. Russell, MD, FACS.
