Join us in Evanston, IL, on November 2nd as the ASBrS hosts another one of its popular oncoplastic skills courses. This is a primer course designed for general surgeons and breast surgeons who have never performed oncoplastic surgery. The afternoon's hands-on surgical cadaver skills lab allows for supervised practice of procedures taught in the morning lectures.
The American College of Surgeons and the American Society of Breast Surgeons are pleased to announce a shared scholarship, the 2020 ACS/ASBrS International Scholarship. This scholarship will be awarded to a surgeon specifically working in breast cancer surgery in underserved and developing areas to improve the quality of breast cancer surgical services.
The scholarship, in the amount of $5,000, provides the scholar with an opportunity to attend the American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrS) 21st Annual Meeting, April 29 - May 3, 2020 at the Bellagio, Las Vegas, NV and to visit the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) headquarters in Chicago, IL, to learn about the standards for a breast cancer program/database and the importance of multidisciplinary breast cancer care. The deadline for receipt of all application materials is November 15, 2019.
The ACS website has the full list of requirements and a link to the application form.
Abstract submission for the 2020 Annual Meeting is now open. Researchers who want their abstracts considered for presentation at the 2020 Annual Meeting in Las Vegas must submit them no later than 3:00 pm ET on November 6, 2019. More information is available on the Society's Call for Abstracts webpage.
We also invite you to submit a video for presentation in this year’s general session showing your colleagues your tricks of the trade. Your video can be used to demonstrate how you perform a novel procedure, provide tips or tricks you use on a standard procedure, or show an approach you take to a clinical problem.
