COVID-19 Impact On Surgery
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, it is more important than ever to share stories about surgical challenges and triumphs. The ACS is interested in learning more about how COVID-19 is impacting your ability to practice and provide quality surgical care as this will help to ensure that the College is well-equipped to continue to advocate on your behalf both in Washington, DC, and across the country.
Please take a moment to share how COVID-19 is impacting you, both personally and professionally. This could include practice impediments; access to, or ability to provide, care; additional administrative burdens; equipment shortages; personal shortcomings (health, finances, etc.), or other concerns.
