Choosing a Fellowship program is a huge step in your medical career. So many choices, so little time to research. The Metropolitan Philadelphia Chapter of the American College of Surgeons would like to help you make the best decision for the next chapter of your surgical career.

Why Join A Local ACS Chapter?

Why belong to your local chapter? Local chapters offer opportunities to network with colleagues in your backyard, attend seminars and other educational events close to home and monitor legislative and regulatory issues affecting Pennsylvania physicians. 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.
