45th Annual Scientific Meeting

April 29-30, 2022  –  Renaissance Downtown Hotel, Providence, RI

Working closely with members of the Academy’s Scientific Organizing Committee to determine professional practice gaps and educational need, ICSUS planners  are developing two days of programming that will provide a minimum of 8 hours of category 1 credit specifically related to our major surgical specialties. A total of approximately 20 credits will be available for the entire meeting, including practice management and ethics sessions.
