The Bulletin of the American College of Surgeons (ISSN 0002-8045) is the College’s monthly member magazine. It contains articles on topics that affect surgical practice and the surgical profession, including, information about and analysis of socioeconomic trends and advocacy efforts, as well as articles centered on professionalism, the surgical workforce and education, innovations in surgery, volunteerism, and so on. The Bulletin also keeps the membership of the American College of Surgeons Fellowship informed about the College’s activities and events, including the Clinical Congress, and programs instituted through the College’s Board of Regents, Board of Governors, Advisory Councils, and divisions. The Bulletin is distributed without charge to Fellows, Associate Fellows, Resident and Medical Student Members, Affiliate Members, and to medical libraries and allied health personnel.

Publication of the Bulletin in January 1916 Originally published on a periodic basis, the Bulletin became a monthly publication in 1970.

To help ensure that the Bulletin continues to serve as a valuable resource to all ACS members, the Bulletin staff invites you to share any story ideas you may have. We are particularly interested in developing and publishing articles on practice trends and innovations, socioeconomic issues, and other nonclinical topics. We also would like to profile more Fellows who are not necessarily well-known, but who are making a positive difference for their patients.
