2024 ACOS General Surgery In-Depth Review Seminar

April 11-14, 2024 | Kansas City, Missouri

ACOS will host the 2024 General Surgery In-Depth Review Seminar (IDR), April 11-14, 2024 in Kansas City, MO. 

2024 IDR Program Chairs, Victoria Schlanser, D.O., FACOS, and Igor Elyash, D.O., 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 of topics found on certification 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
