Dear Residents,

The North Carolina Chapter of the American College of Surgeons (NC-ACS) invites and encourages each of you to take advantage of the FREE membership offer for surgical residents to join the NC-ACS. The leadership is promoting resident involvement in all activities of the chapter, which is your first opportunity to have a voice in the “house of surgery”.

The annual meeting, held jointly with the South Carolina chapter, is in Pinehurst, NC this year from July 14-16, where residents present papers for the resident research competitions, attend the meeting to network with national and regional leaders and participate in the “Jeopardy” challenge between NC and SC residency programs.

Joining the NC-ACS is a quick and easy process. Just click and do it NOW! NC-ACS membership is a great addition to you CV and participation can open up many opportunities for you.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the NC-ACS Resident Committee, please email me at I look forward to seeing you all in July at the annual meeting!

NC-ACS Resident Representative
