The Connecticut Chapter of the ACS Professional Association, and the Connecticut Surgical Quality Collaborative are pleased to announce their 2023 Combined Annual Meeting which will be held on Friday, October 13th at the Trumbull Marriott.

We are proud to host one of the largest and most successful Chapter Annual Meetings across the entire American College of Surgeons. We welcome over 200 surgeons, program chairs, program directors, surgical residents, and medical students together for a full day of continuing education and fellowship.

The meeting lectures focus on current topics in surgery that are important to surgeons in Connecticut. This year we are looking at The Future of Surgery through the lenses of Artificial Intelligence, applied DEI, Quality Improvement and emerging technology. We feature a mid-morning break and a networking lunch in the exhibit room. The day features the resident paper competitions on topics and cases that cover the full span of surgical specialties. The day continues with a lecture for residents and closes with the Surgical Skills Competition. Created in Connecticut, this 2-hour competition allows residents from Connecticut’s surgical residencies to compete against each other in a series of events designed to test their skills using new technology provided by our industry partners.

Exhibitors are encouraged to setup by 7:30am so they can interact with attendees during the continental breakfast, morning break and buffet lunch, all of which are held in the exhibit area. Standard exhibits close down at the end of lunch.  Skills Competition exhibits are reconfigured for the event after lunch.

Please note that we have completely revised our online exhibitor and supporter registration this year. We encourage you to use this system (below) to register.

Thank you!
