Welcome to the Tennessee Chapter of the American College of Surgeons

The Power of Quality

Quality has been the cornerstone of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) since its founding 110 years ago. Through the Power of Quality Campaign, the ACS is on a mission to improve surgical quality and patient care across the country. We will expand the reach of ACS Quality Programs to more hospitals, enlist more surgeons in quality improvement efforts, encourage the adoption of quality metrics into public policy, and help patients seek out hospitals committed to delivering the highest quality of care.

Through the Eyes of a Surgeon

As health care changes, it is critical that surgeons continue to have a strong voice and seat at the table in all patient care decisions. Check out this new video encouraging Fellows to become actively involved in helping the ACS take bold steps and speak with a unified voice on behalf of patients.
