The American College of Surgeons (ACS) 2014 Clinical Congress will feature a Didactic Course titled Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Review: Essentials for Surgical Specialties, on Monday, October 27, 12:30–4:45 pm, in Moscone West, Room 2010. This course will address fundamentals common across the surgical 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, and Co-Chair Robert Bahnson, MD, FACS, have developed a course that is designed to help prepare participants for recertification examinations and support lifelong learning and practice improvement. Dr. Lorenz is an otolaryngologist and attending surgeon, Cleveland Clinic, OH. Dr. Bahnson is 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).
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 program, charging nonmembers the same enrollment fee as ACS Fellows. The reduced fee applies to this course only and not to the Clinical Congress registration fee. To register for the course, go to the Clinical Congress 2014 Web page.
