The American College of Surgeons was established in Chicago in 1913 at the initiative of surgeon Franklin H Martin, MD, FACS (1857-1935). The College is dedicated to improving the care of the surgical patient and to safeguarding standards of care in an optimal and ethical practice environment. The College was an outgrowth of the highly successful Clinical Congresses of Surgeons of North America, which took place annually from 1910 in various large surgical centers throughout North America as a means for continuing
education of practicing surgeons. The publication will be released September 2012 to coincide with the Clinical Congress which is being held in the College’s home town of Chicago.
