MPACS Fellowship 101 Event

The Metropolitan Philadelphia Chapter of the American College of Surgeons held its 1st Fellowship 101 Webinar on Tuesday, March 16th to help our residents and medical students connect with surgical Fellows and Programs Directors to learn more about Fellowship programs across our great City and to help them determine the next chapter in their surgical career. Attended by over 150 participants, the evening provided an overview of the Fellowship application process, things to consider when selecting a Fellowship, and then provided specialty breakout rooms for residents and medical students to connect, one-on-one, with mentors in their field. It was a great night of networking and helping our future surgical generation.

MPACS thanks our sponsors who helped make the event a success through their generous financial support.



Why Join A Local ACS Chapter?

Chapter members looking for guidance or assistance with an issue can reach out to another member, close to home, that could be dealing with the same state-related issue.
