2023 ACOS General Surgery In-Depth Review Seminar

May 4-7, 2023 | Kansas City, Missouri

ACOS will host the 2023 General Surgery In-Depth Review Seminar (IDR), May 4 – 7, 2023 in Kansas City, MO. 

2023 IDR Program Chairs, Victoria Schlanser, D.O., FACOS, and Jennifer Susoreny-Velgos D.O., FACOS, with the support of the In-Depth Review Committee, are diligently working on this year's content to once again, deliver a top-notch, comprehensive educational program.

The IDR is our annual board review course. In addition to earning valuable CME credit, the Seminar is designed to provide the general surgeon with an in-depth review on topics found on certifications exams. Past participants have found it to be a helpful experience in preparing for certification or re-certification examinations**.

**ACOS will not guarantee results on any certification or recertification exams
